Testing Conference at Teachers College on 12/9/13

A major conference at Teachers College on December 9th will seek to defuse the ideologically hyper-charged current national debate over educational testing by exploring the historical roots of educational achievement testing as well as scenarios for its future.  The conference will also spotlight the spread of high-stakes assessments to both early childhood and higher education, pointing to how misguided political and practical uses have sparked resistance to testing by a diverse set of interest groups.

The day-long event – “Testing Then and Now – Building on a Legacy in Educational Measurement, Assessment and Evaluation” – will run from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. in TC’s Cowin Conference Center.
