Americans Support Digital Testing

A new survey from Lincoln Park Strategies and Social Driver has found that a large majority of Americans strongly or somewhat support "the greater use of online technology for testing students." The two leading assessment consortia, Smarter Balanced and PARCC, are proposing "computer adaptive technology,” much of which they hope to conduct online, although only 37 percent of the respondents reported knowing anything about this online testing.

The Lincoln Park Strategies-Social Driver Poll of 1,000 Americans revealed that online student testing tied to Common Core has more support than Common Core itself. While 61 percent of respondents expressed approval of online testing, only 42 percent strongly or somewhat supported the initiative in general.
