Testing Our Schools USA
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/schools/
Testing Our Schools USA
What are the uses and misuses of tests?
Do higher test scores mean better schools?
How does the intense pressure to raise test scores affect the quality of teaching and learning in the classroom?
These are some of the questions FRONTLINE set out to explore in interviews with educators, policymakers, and educational testing experts across the country. What we found is that although standards-based reform has widespread support, experts see a danger in our reliance on standardized tests as the primary measure of school quality. Without the right kinds of tests, they say, and without an understanding of their proper uses, we may do more harm than good to public education in America.
