This episode will examine the PSAT, SAT and ACT standardized tests to determine their purpose and what they really reveal about a student's academic ability. It will also explore the racial or economic bias of the PSAT and SAT and compare and contrast the difference between the SAT and ACT to determine why some colleges prefer one test over the ofther.
What does the test mean? What are the results used for? What does the test results say to the state? to the nation? What does the test accomplish? What does the test really communicate? Join us for this critical dialogue about education and testing.
Bennie S. Covington interviews Marygrove College's Academic Director for the Master in the Art of Teaching program, Diane Brown Ph.D. about a recent study that suggests the majority of teachers are not in favor of standardized tests as an option to gauge student learning. Which leaves us here at Teacher Talk to question: Are standardized tests necessary? We find out!

It's STAR testing week still for many of us in California. What does this mean for the Common Core Standards we've heard about, and the changes in tests we can expect to see in the next few years?
Confused about the implementation of these new standards and tests? You're not the only one -- lawmakers in the California state legislature are also wrestling with unanswered questions surrounding implementation: who'll pay for professional development of teachers? How will every classroom be able to administer computer-based tests? Will low initial scores in NY and KY force more CA schools into Program Improvement?
* Key takeaways: CA spends $50 million to administer STAR tests & $11 million on CAHSEE, the required high school test. * Costs of implementing CCS professional development and new testing could be around $1 billion, yet no money's been allocated for this. Asm. Joan Buchanan: has said $ for PD is about 50c per child in CA. Hardly adequate!
So, whose district is ready for CCS, either on the learning side, or on the testing side?

What we believe determines what we do in life. So the question is how do we show our faithfulness? The answer to that question will reveal if we are living according to the Word of God!
So far, we've studied the first six fruits of The Spirit and they are all qualities in the life of our LORD Jesus Christ. Today, we come to the seventh fruit 'faith' perhaps better called “faithfulness.”
Now that's not only what we believe, but how we live, and what we do, as a result of what we believe. And that's a quality admired by all including God! In fact, God not only admires it, He requires it!
See 1 Corinthians 4:2 Moreover it is required in stewards, that a man be found faithful.
So the truth is it doesn't matter how much ability or personality or intelligence you have, or how hard you work, if you can’t be depended upon plain and simple, you are no good. Faithfulness includes integrity, honesty, trustfulness, and loyalty.
So are you a faithful person? Can you be depended upon?
A recent Gallup poll reported that 40% of Americans admit that they call in sick when not sick; they short-change customers, take short cuts and cheat on tests.
Ever wonder how many people are not even honest enough about their dishonesty to say that they do these things?!
Mr. Gallup said:
“In my estimation, as a scientific researcher, America is in a crisis of the first magnitude. The crisis is not political; it is not military. It is spiritual and moral. There is a spiritual and moral integrity crisis in the United States of America.”
So are you a faithful person? Listen to this message to learn the marks, motivation and method of faithfulness, the seventh fruit of the Spirit!
