Standardized Tests This week focused on standardized testing. What do you remember about standardized testing from when you were in school? Are your memories of standardized testing positive or negative? Based on your own experiences with standardized testing, do you believe standardized assessments should be used in early childhood education? Do you believe standardized assessments have a place in education in general? Journal Options: A written reflection. Create a Thinglink. If you choose this option, you can use a picture or an image related to testing. Make sure to make a tab that addresses each of the questions listed in the journal directions. You can view the Thinglink Quick Start Guide in your online class for directions on creating a Thinglink.
