Standardized Testing and Your Child


In education circles, the first decade of the 21st century may be remembered as the age of testing. The term has taken on a whole new meaning – and weight – in schools today compared to years past. Not only is student achievement being evaluated, but so is the performance of schools and educators themselves. This has affected what and how kids are being taught and introduced an era of “teaching to the test” – and little else, according to some critics. In this, the final podcast of our Straight Talk About Schools series, Judy offers insight on what this means for students in the classroom and how parents can help their children succeed.
