    Standardized Testing with Juli Russ and Emilia Brandimarte

    Standardized Testing with Juli Russ and Emilia Brandimarte

    Episode Two! Today, we're taking a look at the history and inequities of Standardized Testing. A HUGE thanks to Julianna Russ and Emilia Brandimarte for being great interviewees, to Evon Mahesh for being an incredible mentor and editor, to Maya Green for helping with the script, to Claire Gelillo for helping with social media, and to the rest of the Student Voice team for their support!

    A note! In this episode, I reference the concept of "norm-referenced" testing, and I forgot to explain what that was! This article is a good place to start.

    To read that NEA timeline I was referencing so much, click here! I also used this Time article and this JSTOR article to inform my scripting.

    To read Juli's article on KPREP, click here!
