Standardized Testing and Direct Instruction Policies



The prevalence of standardized testing as the assessment of learning means that immersive learning environments and the technologies that engage learners in immersive experiences are inhibiting teacher training in instructional design, standarizing the instructional process for direct instruction, and requiring test scores for teacher retention in U.S. A. public schools.

Define the barrier if it has not been defined yet OR expand on the current definition if you believe that is necessary. Learner-, context-, and/or situation-specific conditions may be relevant here.

Illuminate any concrete examples of the barrier in action.

Pinpoint the technical limitations involved, if applicable.

Imagine potential solutions to knock down the barrier.

Scan any relevant literature you are aware of that relates to the barrier; what are the most pressing overall themes you observe from the literature? (Share any direct URLs.)

Ask any questions that are critical for addressing in order to knock down the barrier.
