More CSAP Follies

A Bennett School District policy that keeps students from advancing to the next grade if they refuse to take the CSAP or don’t try hard enough goes too far, a state education official said Tuesday.

“To use the CSAP test a criteria for retention seems to me to be pretty much over the edge,” said Roscoe Davidson, Colorado’s deputy education commissioner.

How sad that a district which tried to hold its students accountable is being called on the carpet. Again, I say, this is the one most serious flaw of the CSAP. To quote one of the parents quoted in the article:

Furthermore, he said there is no good reason for students to be forced to take the test.

“It’s just a labeling mechanism, . . . It’s not a requirement for anything.”
