Make Assessment Matter: Students and Educators Want Tests that Support Learning


"This national survey of 1,200 educators and 1,000 students meaningfully informs the dialogue about recalibrating the nation's approach to student assessment. The insight from these key stakeholders indicates that the emphasis on high-stakes testing is distracting teachers, district administrators and students from a focus on learning. The student voice, in particular, provides a strong call to action. The survey findings make clear that students want relevant tests that are focused on supporting their learning and aspirations. At a minimum, we hope that this work encourages educators and policymakers to regard students as key partners in this conversation."
