There are two items re. assessments that keep cropping up in my inbox that I would love to receive some feedback on from our readers.
The first item I have been hearing about is the Behavioral and Emotional Screening System (BASC-2) by Pearson. I’ve been told a number of school districts have implemented this. What I would like to know is if your school is and if they had your consent.
The second item: Complaints that some schools are having students sign non-disclosure agreements and/or giving verbal warnings that include non sharing information about the assessment with parents. I can certainly understand not wanting students to share information and discuss assessment questions with other students, but keeping it from parents does not make sense at all.
Anyway, I’d like to hear your stories. You can fill out the form below (your information will be kept confidential unless you indicate otherwise on the form).
