Indiana educators needed for ILEARN development

Indiana Department of Education Office of Student Assessment needs Indiana educators to help with the beginning stages of development for the new ILEARN state assessment that will replace I-STEP.

This is my 12th year as an educator and a top debate year in and year out is the state assessment.  Why was that on the test?  Why wasn’t this on the test? Did they screen the test for cultural bias?  It’s easy to complain, but harder to get involved.  Being transparent, I used to be a complainer, but complaining does not necessarily cause change.  A few years ago, I made a conscious decision to get beyond my four classroom walls and get involved in the larger educational picture.  If you are an educator, I encourage you to do the same.

The deadline to sign up for potential ILEARN development selection is Friday, September 29.  Click here for the sign-up link.

Of course, I would not ask you to do something that I already haven’t done!
