How to overcome apathy and disillusionment when standardized tests fail kids
from EdSurge (commentary)
Farhat Ahmad, a contruibutor for EdSurge, writes: "Many educators recognize that standardized tests don't measure everything — and that some of the most critical types of growth can't be measured by a numerical score. This is especially true for at-risk students. Seven years ago, during my first year of teaching, all of my eleventh graders failed the Georgia State End of Course Test in American Literature. I was working as a special education teacher in Cobb County School District at the time. My co-teacher at the time told me not to worry about it."
