Education, From The Capitol To The Classroom

Pop Quiz: How Are Teachers Preparing For New Standards And Test

When it comes to education policy in Indiana, the last few years have been a bit of a soap opera. A few years ago we saw massive changes to teacher evaluations and school accountability. We adopted Common Core standards. We ditched Common Core standards. We saw an upset in the state superintendent election and the conflict between the State Board of Education. All of these changes came fast, and this school year it’s coming to a head.

StateImpact wants to know how these changes affect your job as an educator and how you’ve spent your summer preparing to teach to the new standards and prepare students for the new assessment. There’s also some questions for parents and how you’re guiding your student through these changes.

This ANONYMOUS questionnaire takes only a few minutes, and it helps us tailor our reporting to what is happening in classrooms.

    I tried to take this poll. As I’m a parent, I only answered the parent questions. But it won’t take my answers because I didn’t fill out the mandatory teacher questions. Unless you only want the opinions of teachers with children in school, then you need to fix this.
