Field testing is slated for approximately 3,600 schools in NYS this June. After the debacle this past April with Math and ELA, our children have had enough of testing. Pearson recently advertised for adult subjects to take a field test with the enticement of a $50-$100 voucher. Field testing is not mandated by state law; it has zero stakes and only serves the testing company. If the April tests or the recently publicized errors in the gifted and talented test scores have taught us anything, is that these tests take away valuable learning time. Even more, as parents, we can see the detrimental affects on the quality of education our children are receiving.
