Support Assessment Reform Victories!

As 2017 comes to a close, your contribution to FairTest will help accelerate the current surge of assessment reform victories. Just look at the list of wins so far in 2017:

  • More than two dozen jurisdictions slashed testing time and eliminated punitive high-stakes consequences. The number of states mandating graduation tests plunged to 13, the lowest since the 1990s.
  • Two dozen more college and universities dropped SAT/ACT admissions test requirements. The number of test-optional institutions is just under 1000, up by more than 100 in just four years.
  • Hundreds of thousands of students in dozens of states opted out of state tests.
  • Interest in teacher-led, student-centered performance assessment continues to grow.

FairTest is the national leader in all these battles. Please donate today!

 Your financial support makes it possible for FairTest to support activist campaigns across the nation, testify before legislatures, and advise colleges considering test-optional policies. With your help, FairTest placed the testing reform message in hundreds of news stories and ratcheted up social media outreach.

2018 promises an even larger, stronger, more strategic movement. FairTest promises to remain out front, but we need your financial support. Please make your largest possible year-end donation to testing reform today through our secure website or mail your check to FairTest, P.O. Box 300204, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130.
