Putting Assessment Back in the Hands of Teachers


"John R. Troutman McCrann, a math educator and teacher leader at Harvest Collegiate High School in New York City, writes that teachers' autonomy to design and assess student learning has been siphoned away. In this article, he makes an argument for why assessment should be left in the hands of those who know students and standards best--teachers--and provides recommendations to school leaders to implement meaningful, teacher-created performance assessments."
