Valdiviezo Discusses Teaching, Testing, Learning in Radio Interview

Laura A. Valdiviezo, associate professor of language, literacy and culture in the College of Education, discussed “Rethinking Testing, Teaching and Learning in Education” during a recent interview on New England Public Radio.

She urged listeners to evaluate testing not as an educational tool but as a profitable multibillion-dollar industry, and instead to pay due and much needed attention to the central role quality teaching and learning play in the construction of equity in education.

Valdiviezo, who is also editor-in-chief of Anthropology and Education Quarterly, was appeared on the program “Tertulia.”
