Massachusetts Professors Protest High-Stakes Standardized Tests

Washington Post

A coalition of more than 130 Massachusetts professors and researchers from some 20 schools including Harvard, Tufts, Boston and Brandeis universities signed a new public statement that urges officials to stop overusing high-stakes standardized tests to assess students, teachers and schools.

The statement also signed by academics from the University of Massachusetts, Clark University, Boston College, Lesley College and other schools is the latest effort in a revolt against high-stakes testing that has spread from coast to coast.
