      money matters. If the state never consider increasing input, but only asks for better output, it is impossible.

      I agree that test to do not measure and should not determine a students achievement of their skills. I suggest that students be assessed by what they are learning at that moment, not later, when they have forgotten what they have written notes on or read several chapters on. As teachers, we are to guide students to learn the concepts. Students are to learn by using a higher-level thinking process, then let them construct their own way to learn the material. Teachers provide the materials in the classroom and explain the expectations of what is required by the TEKS. The assessment is then taken will the students are working in groups, centers or independently. Thanks you.
