Over at Hack Education, Audrey Watters offers some thoughts on the intersection of technology and assessment through the lens of the Atlanta schools testing scandal. She connects the dots (correctly, I believe) by noting that incidents like these will spur efforts to speed adoption of more secure testing environments – such as those offered by computer-based assessment.
