Assessment and Accountability

By District Administrator Gary Hansen

 

Assessment and accountability are the buzz words right now in Wisconsin’s legislature as the Senate and the Assembly start presenting and debating separate and very different bills dealing with education.

This concept is not at all a concern to me as I believe schools should be held accountable, and in order to get the accountability, one must have an assessment (test) from which to measure. School teachers do this in their classroom on a regular basis, so why shouldn’t the state implement the same strategy.  I think most would agree that if a school (be it public or private) is receiving tax payer’s money, it should be held accountable.  What does concern me though, is the thought that private schools which receive tax payers’ dollars will be assessed differently than public schools receiving tax payers’ dollars.  Hmm….  Will this not lead to comparing apples to oranges?  How is it possible for the state to justify the accountability when the very method of measurement itself is different?  How will parents and other taxpayers be able to draw fair comparisons with such a variable?  And exactly why is it that any school receiving tax dollars should be held to a different standard than the next? 

It seems to me that common sense suggests that all schools receiving tax money should be held to the same standard of accountability and use the same assessments for measurement.  Multiple assessments are certain to reduce validity, transparency, and accuracy when comparing the performance of schools and will likely lead to greater confusion to parents and other stakeholders.

Don’t get me wrong.  I believe there are many well informed and intelligent people working on this whole issue of improving education in the state of Wisconsin, and I believe we all want the best education provided to the young people of this state, but if accountability is an important factor in the improvement of education then it seems to me that we should all be tested with the same test.
