Missouri NEA Statement

Statement of the Problem

Missouri NEA recognizes the need for ongoing comprehensive evaluation of

promotion, admission to dual-credit courses and graduation based on a single testing event present major educational and motivational challenges.
Additionally, tests do not always measure what they purport to measure.
