| Sen. Dossett
takes on school testing issues with legislation filed for 2017 session
Release: February 1, 2017
2016 legislative session, Sen. J.J. Dossett was a classroom teacher
at Owasso High School. The issues he hoped to address in the Legislature
included eliminating unnecessary testing and the issue of high-stakes
testing. Dossett, D-Owasso, said he was pleased with the passage
of legislation last year eliminating state-mandated End of Instruction
(EOI) exams, but said one unnecessary assessment test that isnt
required by the federal government remains on the bookshes
seeking to eliminate that state-mandated test with Senate Bill
continues to require schools to administer an assessment in U.S.
history once sometime from the 9th through 12th grades,
Dossett said. This test simply isnt needed. Schools
are still going to teach U.S. History, and just like every other
class, students will take tests in the subject that will measure
how well theyre learning the subject material. This just
eliminates an unnecessary test and gives more time to teachers
to teach and more times for students to learn. Its a positive
thing we can do for teachers and students that wont cost
anyone a dime.
also filed Senate Bill 123 which would modify the Reading Sufficiency
Act. The measure would eliminate the required retention component
for third graders who are found not to be reading at grade level.
It would keep in place the remediation and supports put in place
in the last few years. The bill also retains the Student Reading
Proficiency Team. These teams were created to develop individualized
remediation plans for first, second and third graders who are
not reading at grade level as well as third graders who take the
statewide assessment and were found to be reading below grade
with the concept of making sure Oklahoma students have the fundamental
reading skills they need to learn and succeed, Dossett said.
But Ive always had an issue with the idea of a high
stakes test that may not even reflect a childs actual knowledge
or ability and could inadvertently cause far more harm for the
student than anticipated. Furthermore, if you are waiting until
the third grade, its really too late. The emphasis needs
to be on identifying and assisting children who arent reading
at grade level sooner and getting them the support they need to
get them up to speed. Thats what I hope to accomplish with
