Handling Problematic Situations When Administering the EQAO Assessment
While instructions are provided to teachers on how to administer large-scale assessments, in some cases strict adherence to these instructions may prove to be problematic for teachers in their dual role as both test supervisor and teacher. This study investigated how grade 3 teachers expect to react when faced with problematic situations while administering the EQAO assessment to their own classroom students. Specifically, the researchers explored what these teachers said they would do when faced with a number of hypothetical situations, and why they would choose a certain course of action.
