Tests are everywhere but this can only be in America!

Thanks to John Connell from Cisco I came across this article on the testing business in America. Businesses make huge profits from selling tests to school districts or states as a result of the NCLB legislation and as it now appears even more money from the pre test materials. But boy oh boy can they get it wrong and the consequences well – as John said just read page 4 of the article if nothing else.

Watch out teachers and lets become the watchdogs for political policies that have high stakes testing as accountability .
