Explain, in your own words, what standardized testing is and how it is different from achievement testing.
Standardized testing measures student learning. An Achievement test is a test of develop skills or knowledge. The most common type of achievement test is a standardized test.
Compare and contrast how the different types standardized testing differs from the other forms of assessment discussed throughout this course. Provide specific examples and support your points with information from the course text.
Standardized testing is created by the teacher to know how much the student have learned and to measure the student weakness and strengths. The other types of testing that I learned in this book measures the student learning by observations there is no right or wrong answer. For example, the anecdotal assessment is done by observing the child and writing notes about the childâ€™s behavior. Most of the assessments in this book are based on observations and the results are used to help the students master a skill.
Defend one of the quotes below from the article Something’s wrong with both standardized tests and the ‘Opt-Out’ movement. Explain why you support or agree with the quote and provide specific details as to why. Support this portion of your post with the text and at least one scholarly resource.
Option 3: I agree with this option â€œwhen seen for the desk-chair of a classroom pupil, children robbed of the individuality that comes from differentiated instructionâ€ for example in my school 3rd to 5th grade the focus of the teachers is to get the students ready to take the state assessment (STAAR test) the teachers only teach what they think what supposed to be in the test.
Propose a solution to the standardized achievement testing debate. How do you feel children should be assessed in both early childhood and beyond? Provide a rationale for your solution.
In my opinion early childhood should be assess by observations and use the results of the observations to help the students master the skill that will help with their academically development. When they are older I agree with the standardized assessments because the teachers need to know how if the student learned the material and in what areas the students still needs support.
