Community Forum: The Culture of Testing -Assessing Assessment at CPS
Come out and engage in a discussion about our current culture of testing. How did we get here? What tests are our kids taking and how often? What is the utility and impact of all these tests? Is standardized testing the best way to measure achievement?
Panelists include CPS teachers from primary grades to high school and Prof. Noah W. Sobe, Associate Professor of Cultural and Educational Policy Studies at Loyola University where he also directs the Center for Comparative Education. A researcher who studies the history of education and the relationship between globalization and schools, Prof. Sobe serves on the Boards of Directors of several scholarly societies and presents at academic conferences around the
globe. He is also the parent of two daughters currently attending CPS and and a member of a group of education researchers called CReATE (Chicagoland Researchers and Advocates of Transformative Education) and a co-author of CReATE's research brief
on high stakes standardized testing.
