Sally Atkins-Burnett is an assistant professor of early childhood special education at the University of Toledo. She teaches courses in early childhood education and special education.
It is extremely important that tests not be used to make highstakes decisions in early childhood programs. “High-stakes” tests are those directly linked to decisions regarding children’s entry into a program or promotion or retention, that are used for evaluating or rewarding teachers or administrators, that affect the allocation of resources to programs, and that result in changes in the curriculum. Because children’s development, and therefore their performance on any test, is so variable in their early childhood years, none of those “high-stakes” decisions should be based solely or primarily on test scores. Rather, tests should only provide supplementary information to help the teacher, parent, and other specialists arrive at the best possible decision for each child.
