Title

The complications and Negative Repercussions of Standardized Testing

Description

David F. Putnam Science Center, Room 129
Standardized Testing The implementation of No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) of 2001 changed American schools from a place of learning to a place of testing. We will share our research that focuses on standardized testing and the impact on our education system including students. Standardized tests are used across the United States as a basis for evaluating the student's academic performance in relation to teacher effectiveness. Despite the emphasis on standardized testing, teachers are often excluded from policy-making and test developing. For example, 42 states have recently adopted the Common Core State Standards linked to the new Smarter Balance or PARCC exams. With an increased emphasis on standardized test results, teachers are finding ways to teach to the test and students are increasingly developing test anxiety. We also explore the pressures on students and how they can develop coping strategies to deal with stress and anxiety.
