O'Connell: Council on Great City Schools
report indicated that an average student sits for 130 hours of testing over K-12
10 hours a year
more in instruction directed towards testing
real question if we need the scope of tests given
"very welcome spotlight on the amount of testing that's required"
areas that we can reduce standardized testing that we have
refer to Accountability
Boone: not a member, not sure if they would consider it
also, what cost would be
difference between summative and formative assessment
Novick: amend to strike language on working with Council; refer their report
take up with item already in Accountability on amount of standardized testing
items passes as amended
