Standardized tests or testing our standards?

Yesterday we published an article about the recent release of the scores for Island school children.

Today we ask you what you think. What do you think of the MCAS? Do you feel it is a helpful assesment of what our children are learning? Or do you think it is an ill-suited method for categorizing learning?

How do your children feel about the tests? Do the tests cause anxiety? Or do your kids look forward to test weeks because they get snacks in the middle of the day?

How do you feel about where Island kids and schools stand - per the MCAS results? Should we be doing more to push our kids to score higher? Or do our kids need to be learning more than what the test mandates?

Let us know what you think about standarized testing on this not-so-standard Island.
