Point 1 – Meador’s background and stance Point 2 – Pro – testing is accountable, structured, and granular Point 3 – Con – inflexible and political Note: you may read brief quotes during the presentation, so you can paste those onto the outline form or bring your full annotated bibliography to read those from.
Dixon, Bruce “The Testing Emperor Finally Has No Clothes.” Modern Learners, Oct. 6, 2017, modernlearners.com/the-testing-emperor-finally-has-no-clothes. Accessed 20 Oct 2019
In this article “The Testing Emperor Finally Has No Clothes.” written by Bruce Dixon writes, “It’s about time the absurdity and deceit of standardised testing was called out for what it is:
A multi-billion-dollar industry that is profiteering by inflicting harm on our young people.” He states the deceit of standardised testing and the little research to support its use. Dixon states that learning is not a competition and that school ranking is shaming.
That Rote memorisation is not learning and the testing kills curiosity. He writes that testing hurts our student, teachers and schools. “We are testing for the wrong reasons.” He believes threat there are viable alternatives to such testing with advice from highly respected educators whom are also against all the testing.
This touches me personally because I have children in school who fill pressured to test. Testing has been a factor in my two boys currently in school disliking school. My hope that laws change and that children can enjoy school again.
