Guam - The Department of Education is moving away from SAT-10 or norm-referenced testing to criterion-reference testing and standards-based formative assessment. According to the administrator of research planning and evaluation Zeni Natividad the Guam Education Board recently adopted the Comprehensive Student Assessment System. This means that instead of students being tested once at the end of the year through SAT-10 they will instead be tested throughout the year so that students who are at risk can be caught and be provided a timely intervention. She says the department not only wants to increase the graduation rate but also raise the quality of those graduates. A workshop featuring Dr. Robert Marzano will be held for teachers from October 27 through the 30th at The Sheraton.
