University education professors and classroom educators have written an open letter to education minister Russ Marchuk about the province’s plan to introduce standardized testing.  Excerpt: “Given that mandatory student standardized testing will not yield any information that cannot be obtained through regularly scheduled randomly assigned student testing groups, and given the ample evidenced-based findings counter to mandatory standardized testing, we feel the decision to subject grade 4 to 12 students to mandatory testing will not be of pedagogical, psychological, social or financial benefit to students, parents,teachers, nor Saskatchewan in general.”
