Standardized Testing : The Good, The Bad and The *VERY* Ugly with Zachary Stein, Ed.D
How can standardized tests begin to asses non standardized minds? How do we capture ineffable constructs like interest, motivation, passion, intelligence , learning potential? These are all fundamentally important questions while exploring the role that assessment takes in the learning process. And they are questions that Dr. Stein has spent a big part of his life tackling, eventually leading him ( during and after Harvard graduate school and doctorate) to co-found a reform organization called Lectica, Inc., a non-profit dedicated to the research-based, justice-oriented reform of large-scale standardized testing in K-12, higher-education, and business.
So basically– this is an awesome conversation where I jam out with Dr. Zak ,AKA the philosopher, educational theorist, professor, dyslexic and educational non for profit founder , on the good, the bad, and the ugly of standardized testing . Enjoy, and don’t forget to share your thoughts with me via Instagram or Facebook.
