In Florida, music teachers must administer computerized tests to assess themselves.
It is a setup.
If students have difficulty with signing onto the computer, or with submitting a response, the teacher assisting these students could be accused of cheating.
It’s called “zero tolerance.”
On October 28, 2016, the Tampa Bay Times published a story about a music teacher who was accused of cheating on the computerized test designed to test her.
Never mind that the outcome of the test was terrible. Zero tolerance.
Never mind that using computerized tests to determine fine arts outcomes is imbecilic on its face. The State of Florida wants to test all teachers in their subject areas, and the narrow, unrealistic practice of using computerized standardized tests to determine teacher worth might as well be extended to its illogical extreme.
Instruments down, kids. Time to grade the music teacher. Have a seat at the computer.
