Wasn’t our government just all for differentiated instruction… Standardized tests do nothing for that topic. Not to mention they just flew in someone from Finland to talk about how and why Finnish schools are surpassing all others, one of the reasons being they have gone away with standardized tests.
Teachers are going to start feeling the pressure and start to teach for the test and who is going to suffer? Our students. Standardized tests are created for standardized people, and who is standardized anyways. Standardized tests create standardized people…
Good-luck to all of my fellow Saskatchewan teachers out there… Or should I say good luck to the students?
