  • Next message: edequity@phoenix.edc.org: "Re: Educational Assessment--SAT I"

    The discussion about education assessments will continue for all of us.
    The need and the challenge to use assessment processes in a constructive
    and equitable manner will remain. As long as there are differences in
    achievement among our students the dialogue needs to continue, not only
    among ourselves, but, also, with policy makers and others. There is too
    much at stake for our children and for the future of our society to use
    assessments as a method to further marginalize populations already removed
    from full access to equal educational opportunity.

    As this dialogue concludes, it would be approriate for those who have
    participated to share their thoughts, caveats, and hopes about this. What
    all of you have shared has been most insightful and has given a greater
    depth to this than discussion than would otherwise have occurred. Thank

    Keep in touch.
