standardized testingI found a podcast by Peter Sacks on Early Childhood News that deals with Standardized testing. According to Peter Sacks when school systems become exclusively focused on standardized test scores, real learning suffers. Give this podcast a listen and see what Peter means by authentic assessment, and why it’s a better indicator of what children are gaining from school.

This is becoming something of a meme in my writing but it is very important to understand that at preschool level standardized testing may not be helpful and may in fact harm your child's future well being and academic performance.
