Test Mess 2: Are We Doing Better a Year Later?
Phi Delta Kappan, v86 n5 p389 Jan 2005
In January 2004 the author published an article in the Kappan titled "The Test Mess." In it, he examined how the state and federal accountability and tests were going. It was clear at that time that tests and accountability were not going to disappear--or even diminish--as the central mechanisms of the national effort to improve education. It was also clear then that many of the efforts being made were facing some doubt or encountering some difficulty. This year, it is clear that most of the issues in play have become even more complex. The rage for (and increasingly against) testing and accountability shows no signs of abating. In this article, the author updates his own assessment of developments on the testing front.
