Quantum Theory, the Uncertainty Principle, and the Alchemy of Standardized Testing

author: Selma Wassermann
description: "It is not the tests that should drive what we do in the act of teaching, Ms. Wasserman reminds us. Rather, all of us in the profession must say: this is what is important to us in the education of our youth. Let the ways of assessment we devise determine whether we have achieved our goals." She describes what should be done to ensure that high standards are upheld and she shares a new approach that a group of teachers developed to use in the evaluation of their students.
