Our Mission

This site provides a space for you to share your observations of standardized tests your students are taking this year. What works? What doesn't? Whether your district is giving its own, CC aligned test or is piloting PARCC or Smarter Balanced, we want to pass the microphone to you, the people closest to the students being tested. The world needs to hear your stories, insights, and suggestions. Our goal is collective accountability and responsiveness through a national, online conversation.

So find your state, click in, and share your observations. Please keep your comments constructive and specific. If you are able to sign your name, that’s great, but anonymous is okay, too. Encourage everyone to contribute. Return often to hear what others across the nation are saying. Your voice matters!
