Complete part I and II before class on 5/9. Complete part III in class.

I. Read supplementary reading #5 and write two discussion questions related to the reading. These questions should be questions for discussion, NOT factual questions (see below).  Please think of questions you would like to discuss with your classmates. I will select several student questions as the basis for our class discussion.

An example of a discussion question:

What are some of the limitations of testing? How might we change tests to ensure that they accurately measure student performance?

An example of a factual question:

What effects on teachers do Charlesworth et. al find?

II. Find a web site on standardized testing. Print out, read, and bring a printed copy of the report to class  with you.
