A message from Monty Neill:

"The damage to teaching and learning caused by over-reliance on standardized tests is widely acknowledged. It includes narrowed curricula, teaching to the test, and one-size-fits-all instruction. The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) offers a significant opportunity for states and districts to revamp their assessment systems.

Unfortunately, few states plan to replace standardized tests with educationally superior forms of evaluation. However, many are eliminating the bulk of No Child Left Behind-style punitive sanctions. This provides an opening for districts to stop teaching to standardized tests and adopt assessments that support more high-quality, in-depth and engaging learning."

ESSA presents an opportunity to improve assessment. States should replace standardized tests with educationally superior forms of evaluation. Monty Neill talks to parents about how this goal can be achieved here in Oregon.

Join us for a new look at assessments and get the facts. Monty is prepared to answer your questions about high stakes standardized testing and the choices we have.
