Standardized Testing

  1. 1. Standardized Testing CCII Spring 2016 By: Valerie Russo
  2. 2. Why is it relevant/worth exploring? ▶ Affecting education system ▶ Compares students to each other ▶ Part of the application for most colleges and universities
  3. 3. Potential Questions ▶ Are these test reasonable? ▶ Does standardized tests cause stress to students? ▶ Should colleges require standardized test scores? ▶ Are standardized tests in elementary and middle school necessary? ▶ Are they too long?
  4. 4. Research Available ▶ Educational Administration Abstracts by EBSCOhost Research Database (on lib.rowan.edu under Databases) ▶ The Washington Post reports articles about the topic ▶ National Education Association gathers information of the study ▶ American Federation of Teachers reports the effects of the tests on the school system
  5. 5. Three Specific Sources James, Julia Carol, and C. Kenneth Tanner. "Standardized Testing Of Young Children." Journal Of Research & Development In Education (1993): 143. Educational Administration Abstracts. Web. 20 Feb. 2017. Layton, Lyndsey. "Study says standardized testing is overwhelming nation's public schools." The Washington Post. WP Company, 24 Oct. 2015. Web. 15 Feb. 2017. Williams, Teresa Scotton. "Some Issues In The Standardized Testing Of Minority Students." Journal Of Education 165.2 (1983): 192. Educational Administration Abstracts. Web. 20 Feb. 2017.
  6. 6. Potential Challenges ▶ All schools have adapted standardized tests and if students are planning on applying to college they are going to have to take a standardized test ▶ Standardized testing has become part of the country's education system using it to compare students strengths and weaknesses
  7. 7. What is the issue? The issue is that not all students are good at taking tests and using a long rigorous test to compare students to each other is wrong. All of these tests depend on how much the students were prepared for it and that could vary for different places.
