New Online Testing: ‘Train wreck’ waiting to happen?

Local administrators say there is not enough time to prepare students for new state test

New Standardized Test In Indiana Implements Use Of Technology.

The Lafayette (IN) Journal and Courier (11/3, Dover) reports that the decision by Indiana education officials to make students take the ISTEP+ standardized test on computers has one local school official calling it a “train wreck waiting to happen.” Officials are concerned that they will not only have to teach students the content of the exam, but also how to take it as it could take six months to “walk students through the process.” Proponents of the new exam say that it will focus on problem solving while critics are concerned about the time it will take to prepare students.
