"Are You Smarter than a Fifth-Grader?" SBAC Test Demonstration
Date:Wed, 04/12/2017 - 9:30am - 12:30pm
Members of AFT Connecticut-affiliated unions representing PreK-12 educators are organizing this important demonstration that our students are "more than a test score." Legislators will be asked to take an interim assessment test themselves in order to better understand the shortfalls of standardized testing -- particularly for English Language Learners (ELLs), students with special needs and those with limited access to technology.
Members are invited to observe and share their concerns regarding state testing policies directly with their elected representatives in the Connecticut General Assembly. Volunteers are needed to assist with test instructions and review.
