Delaware State Testing

At $40 million per test…. add them up….

I count 9 testing windows…..

Let’s see…

  • Grades 3-10   Fall Assessment Window   October 2-18…..
  • Required EOC:  Algebra II, IM III, US History, (optional) Biology  January 1-31

  • P/P Science Grades 5, 8 ,10…. P/P Social Studies 4, 7  May 19- June 2

So when does a child get a chance to be taught?

It appears that through November and December, a child gets a chance to be taught without being pulled out to take a test…..

At $40 million per test…. don’t the priorities seem a little warped to you too?
