I was recently asked to write an article about what testing could
be, as in a few years or even a decade from now. My main thought
is that what we have now, high stakes accountability and some
levels of formative assessment, have not produced the type of
real learning gains that most would like. There is a lot of talk
and writing about “assessment systems,” but I think that in the
future, we might be better off with “learning systems,”
completely integrated instruction and continuous assessment.
I’d be interested in hearing any thoughts on this subject???
