Sir Ken Robinson on Standardized Tests

"What schools are often encouraged to do is to stop the world so it can be taught. And it can't be stopped. We have to engage with the flow of knowledge and with the evolution of understanding. We therefore need forms of curricula which are open and dynamic"... "The emphasis on standardized testing has tended to encourage passivity and not activity"... "We need forms of assessment which are descriptive and not judgemental" -- Sir Ken Robinson
