AZSTANDARDS is an information and action group that wants to improve education by ridding schools of the misuse and abuse of standardized tests by supporting the use of meaningful, reliable and descriptive alternatives. Their aim is to get rid of test-driven education,
change people's views of accountability, emphasize curriculum substance rather than test-prep in the classroom, influence state lawmakers to allow districts to create more appropriate alternatives to measuring learning and academic success, and stop the use of high-stakes tests as a requirement for graduation. An intelligent, informative site with news, articles, quotes, reading lists, research, related web links, and ideas for alternatives. (For example, to graduate from Sedona Red Rock High School, each senior must successfully complete one exhibition.) Invite a member of the AZ Standards Speakers Bureau to your community.
