High Stakes Testing: Are we misleading the public?
Thursday, September 17, 2009 from 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Frederick Douglass-Issac Myers Maritime Park
The emphasis placed on testing is higher than ever. Scores are rising, but at what cost? Are our children being shortchanged?
Join the Baltimore Curriculum Project and Urbanite Magazine as we explore these and other questions with testing expert Dr. Daniel Koretz (Harvard University), economist Dr. Brian Jacob (University of Michigan), and Assistant Professor of Education Policy Dr. Rebecca Jacobsen (Michigan State University).
Doors open at 3:30 pm
Event begins at 4:00 pm
Seating is limited for this event. Registration is required. The first 100 attendees to arrive will receive a copy of Daniel Koretz’s book Measuring Up: What Educational Testing Really Tells Us.
