PSSAs measure not just academic achievement, but yearly growth – the least biased and most useful measure of school performance.
Results are comparable across all PA schools (including Charters).
The exams themselves are developed to a high standard --they are normed and statistically valid test instruments, administered under controlled conditions.
There are no other tests given in our schools that provide high-quality, school-level, benchmark measures of student achievement and growth. I will go deeper into these reasons in my next 'Opt In' post.
