The next step is to bar this year’s test scores from all student permanent records. If you think of it, it is the best compromise possible. What they answered can be gleaned for any helpful tendencies to provide feedback, but no child will have on their record how poorly they did on this poorly written and put-together test….
And while at it, bar all data gleaned from the social and psychological testing part, as well. So it never hits their record… Nothing on this test, ever hits their record. so that 20 years hence, no one can go back and see these scores. and shuffle one of today’s students aside for an executive position because they took this test and failed, whereas their co-worker vying for the same vice-presidency, went to private school and avoided the Smarter Balanced all together…..
Simply insert into the Delaware Code that student scores on the Smarter Balanced will not be attached to their permanent record, and the data will never leave AIR which administered the test.
That would provide personal protection for those who should have opted out, but didn’t…..
