Rhode Island and the Magic of Standardized Testing

Diane Ravitch's blog

Rhode Island State Commissioner Ken Wagner says that the state will drop the unpopular Common Core exam PARCC and adopt instead the Massachusetts test called MCAS. After all, if Massachusetts is the highest-achieving state in the nation, it must be because they have the best tests! So soon, you can expect Rhode Island to be up at the top of NAEP alongside Massachusetts because testing must be the key to their success, especially since Massachusetts has used more or less the same tests for two decades. Stability and the same test. Magic!

Now if every state adopted MCAS, then every state would be at the top!
