Dietel, Ron – Kappa Delta Pi Record, 2012
Even as the Internet and i-devices have changed so many parts of people's lives, educational testing has not changed substantially in decades.

Diana, Thomas J., Jr. – Kappa Delta Pi Record, 2011
Often, for preservice students, teacher education programs consist of a series of disjointed experiences that fail to make a connection with their fieldwork and student teaching.

Berliner, David C. – Kappa Delta Pi Record, 2009
Backers of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law based their support on the belief that teachers and administrators primarily were responsible for low levels of achievement by America's poor. This one-sided view about who is responsible for the nation's achievement gap is both inadequate and unsupported by the evidence. The author argues that harsh…

The author of this article argues that, just as Americans were shocked into action, when the Soviet Union launched Sputnik in 1957, by strengthening STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) in the educational curriculum, Americans must be shocked again.
