My friend is an 8th grade english teacher and this is her 3rd year of teaching. They just had the ELA test which is a standardized test. Well she gave the test to 15 students and misread the directions on one part of the test. The students were supposed to only have 45min to complete the section but she unknowingly gave them 60min. So the students will still get to keep their scores but the tests won't count towards statewide statistics. Her supervisor was a little upset but very understanding. a few of the other teachers are very upset at her and called her saying "how stupid she was" "how could you do this" "someone needs to reap the consequences" etc. they want to get her fired but luckily she has tenure. My friend is pretty upset as to how hard the other teachers are being on her. She is surely sorry for her mistake and feels bad about it. I think these teachers are taking this way tooo far. I don't feel standardized testing is very effective anyways. My SAT scores basically said I was a dummy who would never make it through college. Well I graduated cum laude and was a member of 4 honor societies. What do you all think about this?
