The Misalignment of Teachers’ Perceptions of Assessment of Student Learning with National and State Policy

This poster is a representation of the results of an action research project that sought to find out if teachers’ perceptions of assessment of student learning aligned with national and state policy. Assessment is core to teaching. Yet there is much disagreement on how student learning should be measured. Using a mixed methods research method, an analysis of national and state educational assessment policies were compared to data gathered from teachers. Data collection methods were documents and surveys. The results showed that teachers perceptions of assessment of student learning do not align with national and state policy. Teachers indicated they valued more formative assessment measures, ranking state testing as the least effective method of assessment of student learning.
