    • Ten Arguments for Testing from NCLB Supporters: What are your thoughts on these arguments presented by Nichols and Berliner (2007, pages 9-16)? Nichols, Sharon L. & Berliner, David C. (2007). Collateral Damage: How High-Stakes Testing Corrupts America’s Schools. Cambridge, MA: Harvard Education Press.
      • Students work harder and learn more when they have to take high stakes tests.
      • Students will be motivated to do their best and score well on high stakes tests.
      • Scoring well on high-stakes tests leads to feelings of success by students, while doing poorly on such tests leads to increased effort to learn.
      • Students and teachers need high-stakes tests to know what is important to teach and learn.
      • Teachers need to be held accountable through high-stakes tests to motivate them to teach better and to push the lazy ones to work harder.
      • The high-stakes tests associated with NCLB are good measures of the curricula taught in school.
      • The high-stakes tests provide a kind of level playing field, an equal opportunity for all students to demonstrate their knowledge and skill.
      • Teachers use the results of high-stakes tests to help provide better instruction to students.
      • Administrators use the results of tests to improve student learning and to design professional development.
      • Parents understand high-stakes test scores and can use them to interpret how well their child is doing in school.
