@jmsprincipal It’s not fair at all, in fact, to use a teacher eval system where 70% of FL Ts teach in content/grade level w/o a test

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jmsprincipal

@dena_rogers @shirky17 Amen to that, but unfortunately high stakes testing in K-12 schools has never truly been about reliability & validity

HaselwoodMath @wfryer @voiceokc I think the more we can get our Admins to really speak out as well, let our communities hear them and get input

@_levi_ @JonnyCurriculum @mrjoshflores I would be happy to facilitate a GHO but I’m not an expert on - we prob need 2-3 speakers…

@HaselwoodMath definitely! 1 of the things we need to do is continue to model & support/celebrate admins using social media

RT @grendelrick @tiffanyneill True. As it stands though, higher ed doesn’t care about any of our EOIs. That will never change.

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to grendelrick

@_levi_ that is SUPER! Keep up the good work & don’t let all this ridiculousness w CCSS get you down. We need your energy & vision!

For those of you who were able to attend the @voiceokc panel today, please post your reflections / takeaways this week!

@alprather @TwyllaHester that is SUPER! I’d love to help support @voiceokc - maybe we can livestream future panels / meetings?

@kellianglley @_levi_ @JonnyCurriculum @coach57 we certainly should use some collaborative writing tools to draft new standards!

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to kellianglley

Here’s a Q7: How can we use this opportunity to promote OER (open educational resources) in our new state standards? :-)

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

@TwyllaHester Maybe we need a @snopes -like series on testing myths & realities?

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to TwyllaHester

@TwyllaHester Right - in the midst of all these, I made some connections to some of the parent leaders of those groups…

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to TwyllaHester

A6 I think we need to amplify & share the responses which our district admins will have to in August

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

@TwyllaHester So what would a coordinated effort to educate parents on testing look like? Could students be involved? Webinars?

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to TwyllaHester

@shirky17 a moratorium on testing for 2 years may be a step forward, however, given that new standards haven’t been written

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to shirky17

@shirky17 we shouldn’t have high stakes testing in our schools, & that should be part of our long term vision / agenda

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to shirky17

A6 We need to provide more transparency in every school about the (-) impact testing continues to have… like on our counselors :-(

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

A6 I think we need to focus more on parent education. We have lots of parents “out there” angry over CCSS, but still mis-informed…

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

A6 We need to push for a coordinated plan that involves BOTH standards & testing. We need a long term vision & focus

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

RT @_levi_ A5: I believe the new standards will be better than CCSS. The normal revision cycle was only a yr later.

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to _levi_

A5 We should push to have a high stakes testing moratorium until new standards are written in 2016. Waste of time & $$$ otherwise

via TweetChat powered by oneQube

@ChrisParadise @ClaudiaSwisher that is great! I really enjoyed your post together from yesterday :-)

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to ChrisParadise

RT @coach57 Most educators like the idea of using ACT assessments but HB3399 eliminates this as an option

via TweetChat powered by oneQube in reply to coach57

@JonnyCurriculum @coach57 Why don’t we setup a Google Hangout discussion with some folks discussing details of ?

@MaryAnnReilly …but the predominant culture has encourage that at every turn

via Hootsuite in reply to MaryAnnReilly

@MaryAnnReilly high-stakes testing has been a reality since NCLB in our public schools. I agree many schools have amped up the pressure…
