Summary

The purpose of this study was to determine views of administrators, school board members, teachers, parents, and children as they relate to the increased emphasis on testing children in the early grades. Survey instruments were developed with questions focusing on six areas of concern: (1) changing purposes of kindergarten and early childhood programs; (2) children's readiness for tasks demanded by testing; (3) problems related to increased student stress and negative attitudes; (4) time devoted to testing and related activities; (5) curriculum changes resulting from tests, and (6) teacher stress and lack of autonomy. The surveys were distributed to subjects residing in a 17-county area in southeast Georgia. Frequency tabulations indicated that the various groups of subjects share many concerns related to the increased emphasis on testing. Teachers, administrators, and board members were similar in clearly identifying negative associations with testing. Parents and children were consistent in their portrayal of negative test characteristics. (Author/RH)
