Handling Teacher and Student Testing Burnout | Edutopia

Handling Teacher and Student Testing Burnout | Edutopia:

 "I am so fed up with testing. In the state of Texas, out of 180 days of instruction, there are over 35 days of testing of one form or another. That is nearly 20 percent of the instructional year spent on state standardized testing. That does not include the district benchmarks, SAT, PSAT, ACT, AP course testing and even a few more!

In Texas, if a student does not pass each of the five STAAR end-of-course tests each year, the student could be taking 15 discrete tests and retests their senior year in order to graduate."
