State Testing, a Key Measure of Student Progress, Now Underway

I’ve been sharing an editorial by Bruce Alberts in Science Magazine (15 January 2016) that suggests that science teachers, due to our training or proclivity toward data- and/or research-based decisions are an underutilized resource to solve some of the more difficult problems in education. The editorial is here: http://bit.ly/empowergreatteachers

But, of course, we (as experimentalists) may have also been the cause of some of the biggest expansions of the “test, test and more test” malaise that affects education. So, my esteemed colleagues, what one test would you give, and when would you give it to measure x, y, or z, educational outcomes?

Can you limit it to just one?
