Question description

The pressure is really on these days for students to excel on standardized assessments, and teachers in particular feel that pressure as their credibility, bonuses, salary levels, and possibly even their jobs may be jeopardized as a result of low test scores. Some teachers have even resorted to cheating as a means of ensuring that their teaching reputations and careers are not threatened in any way.


In your opinion, should student scores on standardized tests have these types of possible negative effects on teachers' positions? Why or why not?


What level of accountability should teachers have in relation to how well their students perform on standardized tests, particularly high stakes tests?


What are some ways that teachers can help students to prepare for these tests in an appropriate manner without resorting to cheating?
