Personalised Corruption: testing, cheating and teacher-integrity

VIEW FULL TEXT | ISSUE CONTENTS LIST

The government's plans for students in KS2 and KS3 to be 'tested when ready' mark an attempt further to embed instrumentalist views of education. 'Testing-when-ready' is seen as an intensification of the harmful regime of testing, targets and League Tables which Mansell (2007) labels 'hyper-accountability'. Highlighting aspects of Mansell's book together with recent research into teacher-'cheating' and resistance to high stakes testing in the USA, this article concludes with a call for teachers here to safeguard their willingness to consider and understand the learning which tests don't see.
