    “The U.S. Department of Education, which has recommended that schools spend no more than 2 percent of classroom time taking tests,”

    This makes sense, but I think many people will read this and think “so kids are only being asked to prove mastery of the material 2% of the time?” There are very few “tests” as I remember them from my schooling present in my classroom, but we do have many formative/summative assessments to measure where a student is with the specific curriculum at any one time.Report
