Parents and Educators: Standardized Testing Rights and Wrongs
Oct 27 @ 7:00 pm – 8:00 pm
Parents and Educators: Standardized Testing Rights and Wrongs

This event will provide parents with context and analysis of the CPS testing regimen. Participants will learn about the history of high stakes testing in CPS and the current state of standardized testing in CPS. The impact of high stakes testing on students—and specifically English learners and students with special needs—and information about the specific tests administered, like NWEA, will all be covered. Join us to discuss high stakes testing and its specific dimensions in the face of pandemic.
