Keeping Up With Keystones - Best Practices for Student Success
Standardized tests have played a role in the American education system since the 1800s. After the No Child Left Behind Act (2002) was passed, educators experienced even more pressure to increase student performance on such tests to be considered an effective teacher. As Pennsylvania teachers, we are responsible for preparing students for the end of year tests such as PSSAs, Keystones, or Advanced Placement exams. Many teachers ask How can I best prepare my students for the Keystone?I was able to sit down with Jennifer Henney, a biology teacher at Penn-Trafford High School, and ask her about her preparations for the Keystone exam each May.
