High-Stakes Testing

What are your thoughts?


The Mid-Hudson School Study Council has commenced a study on high-stakes testing.  This study is being conducted in an attempt to learn and understand more about the perceptions of high-stakes testing.  In addition, the data collected will contribute to the existing base of knowledge regarding individuals' perceptions of high-stakes testing and be used in future workshops offered by the Mid-Hudson School Study Council. 


Parents, teachers, secondary students, administrators, and community members can access the survey here


To facilitate the completion of the study, we would appreciate hearing from you by October 28, 2013.
