CReATE Research Brief #1: Testing Today in Context: History, Impact, and Alternatives

At a time when standardized testing has come to dominate educational reform in Chicago and across the nation, and test results have come to define success and failure, it is important to counter several common misconceptions around testing. 

Toward this end, CReATE (Chicagoland Researchers and Advocates for Transformative Education) has produced a policy brief in English and Spanish that uses research in the field of education to demystify how testing—particularly high-stakes testing—has come to serve as not only the mechanism of assessment, but also the foundation for teaching and learning. 

The brief draws on research to address the history of our current approach to educational testing; the reasons why even testing experts are concerned; the impact of this singular focus on how assessment is defined and practiced; and the range of assessment alternatives that exist, but have been ignored in current debates. In doing so, it presents the facts about testing today.
