Thank you for bringing numerous items to the surface in your report. The system is “broken” and the Smarter Balanced test does not do it any justice as I feel it does not test for understanding. Technologically compromised as well as discrepancies from the standards seem to be what $72 million dollars have brought us. I’m sure we could all go on and continually add to what has been brought out. I just hope the profession itself doesn’t get destroyed in the process.
