Is the SAT really the best way to measure our kids’ success?
The time is now for Delaware to make a bold move regarding what measure is used to assess the growth, achievement and progress of Delaware’s high school students.
Currently, the SAT (Scholastic Achievement Test) is neither a true nor complete measure of the capabilities and accomplishments of our high school students. We need to take the opportunity now to reevaluate why Delaware is using this as the only measure and what we can use to better assess the progress of our students.
The first step is to open a discussion of the impact that the use of the SAT for all public high school students is having on attracting new businesses to Delaware.
