Aw. I hate that this is where we disagree. Wait. Correction. I do agree that a way to attack accountability is to attack the instrument. But, I disagree that tests function as such. Tests are designed to CREATE gaps. The system that uses these gaps is the true instrument.

Random thought: Kids are often taken to soup kitchens to feed the homeless, but how often are those shelters then explaining to kids why homeless is so pervasive in the first place? Are they talking about systemic racism? Having conversations about mental illness? Evictions?

Clearly identification and recall knowledge aren't required for professional achievement/progress. But, let's keep testing for it as the central measure of performance.

Yes, it will be. But, it's a necessary evil. The impact that high stakes (improperly constructed & positioned) tests have on instruction is even more catastrophic.

I've been saying this about "schooling" for a very long time!

when black children get bullied, they do not get widespread media coverage. they do not get invited to red carpet premieres, they don’t get free tickets to NFL games, and they do not get $50,000 on gofundme in one day. they’re told to get over it.
