High Stakes

CVPE SUPPORTS low stakes diagnostic testing.  We are OPPOSED to high stakes testing

high stakes testing: When standardized test scores are used to make high-stakes decisions about students             (promotion/retention), teachers (retention/compensation), and schools (school closures).

low stakes diagnostic testing: When standardized test scores are used to give parents and teachers a little more information about student progress and learning.  Scores are treated as just another data point, not as an iron-clad indication of success or failure.  Private schools often use standardized testing in this way.
