Hill Says Teachers Frustrated by Over-Testing

State Superintendent Cindy Hill

Wyoming Superintendent of Public Instruction Cindy Hill says many classroom teachers in Wyoming are becoming frustrated by the amount of time they must spend preparing students to take standardized tests.

Hill says teachers she has spoken to don’t have a problem with student assessments and recognize that a certain amount of standardized testing is helpful in measuring students academic progress. But she says many Wyoming teachers feel pressured to spend so much time preparing students for standardized tests that overall classroom instruction has began to suffer as a result. Hill says the situation reminds her of  the “old Wyoming adage that taking the cows to weigh them more frequently doesn’t make them gain weight”.

Hill says she thinks part of the problem is that people outside of education are making decisions about state schools. She says giving teachers more input into educational issues might be a better approach.
