National Resolution on High-Stakes Testing

For those of you who would like to place your opposition to the mis- and overuse of high stakes standardized tests on the record, I am sharing the National Resolution on High Stakes Testing that's been circulating recently. The National Resolution is modeled on the Texas Association of School Administrators (TASA) resolution passed by more than 412 Texas school boards as of April 26, 2012.

The dissatisfaction and search for alternatives that's happening in Texas seems like a hugely positive development toward more meaningful, student-centered teaching and learning. I am not sure what the impact of the national resolution is supposed to be, though even if it's only used to say that all of the rest of us support TASA's stand for better assessment for better learning, that seems like use enough.
