EDU 510 SU School Tests and Opt Out Movements & Cheating Scandal Questions – Assignment Help

I’m working on a psychology multi-part question and need an explanation to help me learn.

Part 1

  • Do you think that high stakes testing is necessary to assess school achievement and track school improvement?
  • Explain your reasons why or why not.
  • How do you think the opt-out movement is affecting these tests?

Part 2

Differentiation is essential in today’s classroom. Students who have learning difficulties often have accommodations such as the ability to use computers or extra time when completing assignments. To reach students who have different learning needs, teachers give students choices to demonstrate mastery of a skill or subject. For example, instead of taking a unit test, students can choose between turning in a portfolio of work, submitting a research report, or creating a poster project.

  • Discuss the validity and reliability of these accommodations and alternate assignments. Is there justification for giving alternate choices to demonstrate proficiency or mastery of a skill or subject? If so, when and how should students be given a choice?
  • Respond to at least one of your classmates.
  • Explain whether you agree with their answer, and why.
  • Support your answer and response with material from the reading for the week and/or other quality resources.

Part 3

Pretend you were a teacher in the Atlanta school district during the time of the cheating scandal from this week’s readings. You suspect that your fellow teachers are changing answers to increase their scores. There is extreme pressure from the superintendent for every class to receive exemplary scores or risk getting fired.

  • Discuss:
  • What actions can you take?
  • Is there a way to protect yourself as a whistle blower?
  • What are ways you can make a case that the tests your students have to take are biased and do not show a fair representation of their progress and abilities?
  • Respond to at least one of your classmates. Pretend you are the state board of education hearing this complaint.
  • Are you convinced by this teacher?
  • Should you look into changing the tests or investigating the unethical behavior of teachers in the Atlanta school district?
