Why this survey?
The practice of exam re-testing is of major interest for two reasons. First, exam re-testing policies are discretionary. The lack of standards across America’s 100,000 primary and secondary schools means potential disparities for districts, schools, teachers, and students. These disparities extend to communities in which schools are located. Second, we must ask ourselves whether or not exam re-testing is in the long-term best interest of stakeholders in America’s educational system — most importantly, our youth. PERTEtm is designed to build public awareness and help shape public policy. The 2013 edition of PERTEtm will provide baseline information from which we will measure the evolution of exam re-testing.
I want to thank you, in-advance, for participating in the PERTEtm 2013 Survey.
