Would new technology address the issues raised in Atlanta's testing scandal?
Over at Hack Education (http://www.hackeducation.com/), Audrey Watters offers some thoughts on the intersection of technology and assessment through the lens of the Atlanta schools testing scandal. She connects the dots (correctly, I believe) by noting that incidents like these will spur efforts to speed adoption of more secure testing environments - such as those offered by computer-based assessment. At the same time, she seems pretty ambivalent about technology's role (writ large) in the overall shift to test-based accountability.
What do you think? Would new technology address the issues raised in Atlanta?
