Too Much Testing?

“A state commission agreed today on a draft report saying ‘there is too much time spent on testing’ and that several exams should be eliminated or no longer counted in the state’s testing program,” reports the Charlotte Observer.


“The Blue Ribbon Commission on Testing and Accountability agreed to recommend to the state Board of Education that the fourth-, seventh- and 10th-grade writing tests and the eighth-grade computer skills tests be eliminated.”
