Standardization is Dead on Arrival

Standardization is Dead on Arrival

Standardization is an ideal of the industrial age, much like the assembly line, precision, accuracy, order and conformity. Why are we moving forward with assessment programs that still reflect these values, even as everything around us has become individualized and personalized? Our children will have multiple interests, multiple careers, and multiple opportunities to contribute successfully to the global community. If we are intent on preparing our children for this future, then there’s no one right answer. And if there’s no one right answer, standardization is dead on arrival.
