More reasons to dislike the ISAT

I learned recently that we never receive our girls' ISAT test scores. It turns out the school gets an aggregate score, but doesn't release the individual student's scores.

Really?

After two weeks of overtired, stressed out children the parents don't even get to find out how their children tested? We put up with our children rehearsing their songs for the pep rally. We answered all the questions about what happens if they don't pass the ISAT. We held their hands on the way to school to keep them calm before the test.

We never get to see the scores.

I don't even know where to go with this frustrating development. If you're going to test the children the parents should at least be abe to see the scores. Otherwise don't bother to test them.
