NYMUNIBLOG has posted a new item, '"Reality Check' on the Meaning behind the Drop in State Test Scores'" authored by Howard J. Goldsmith.

Mr. Goldsmith states:

“There is a lot of recent press coverage on the meaning, significance, and/or the lack of significance on the recently released results from the 2013 administration of the grades 3 to 8 mathematics and English Language Arts tests.

”While many students may feel poorly, teachers may feel defeated, districts may be blamed, parents may be confused, and politicians may be pointing fingers, the low scores were to be expected. In addition, and the most unfortunate part about all the attention and misplaced focus and priority being placed upon the results released by the State Education Department, these scores are not useful to educators for teaching and learning.”
