Watch A 4th Grader Slam Standardized Testing!!!!

  1. I’m 38 and I live in Pennsylvania. When I was in 11th grade in 1994, I was in one of the first cohorts to take the PSSA. My friends and I were more or less well behaved students who earned respectable grades. When we learned the test would be used to gauge the overall performance of the school, we all deliberate tanked it, simply to amuse ourselves. I kept this in mind during the many years I administered the PSSA (now Keystone) to students I taught. They had zero investment in it. Anything I told them in an effort to motivate them was empty.

    A well-organized but large-scale social media campaign by students could derail testing efforts and force a reexamination of testing culture in just a few cohorts. I’m not certain teenagers realize this. I don’t teach anymore and I have nothing to lose. Maybe I should get behind this. You know, just to amuse myself.
