Re: Kindergarten Reading Exit Exams



Kindergarten exit tests? You're kidding. I know that boys are at risk,
especially small, young boys, but I can't imagine a test at that age that
would be sufficiently reliable to work. You've got to standardize the kids
before you can give them standardized tests and most people I think, even
those in the testing profession don't think it's a good idea to test before
grade 3 (although they do, of course, provide earlier grade tests).

Maybe Deanna will contradict me.
