ECE 611 Week 3 Discussion 1 Debate: Standardized Testing vs. Authentic Assessment\n\n \n\nProponents of standardized testing argue that schools must be held personally accountable for the achievement of every student. Standardized tests are the simplest and most effective tool for measuring student progress and teacher success across the nation. \n\nOpponents argue that while schools should take student achievement seriously, they should not be penalized for students who do not meet state determined achievement goals, as long as students make progress. Furthermore, standardized assessment is not an accurate reflection of teacher performance. \n\nBased on your experience in early childhood education, your knowledge from the reading, and additional research, choose a side in this debate and argue either for or against the use of standardized test scores to determine teacher performance. \n\nIn your answer be sure to include the following: \n\na. Clearly state your position. \n\nb. Discuss developmentally appropriate educational practices in your response. \n\nc. Cite research to support your answer. \n\nd. Avoid generalizing and instead cite specific examples (these may include personal experiences from your teaching). \n\ne. Suggest an alternative form of assessment that is authentic and developmentally appropriate. \n\n \n\nCite at least two references in addition to your text. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ posts. \n\nGuided Response: Analyze several of your classmates’ posts and respond to two classmates whose views differ from your own. In your responses to these classmates, share your view and ask questions that challenge them to extend their thinking.
