Hand over assessment to administration
Mr. Jones is a 12th grade English teacher and department head. He was approached by his administrator to provide a copy of each assessment he plans to administer to the upcoming senior class for British Literature. Mr. Jones did not believe it was ethical so he did not submit the assessments to his administrator. What is the teacher to do or what recourse does he have?

I feel that the teacher should have spoken with the administrator first before making the decision of not turning them in. That, I feel is unethical.

I feel like Mr. Jones made a bold move by deciding to not do what his administrator asked of him. I feel as if Mr. Jones was rebelling. Instead of rebelling, Mr. Jones should have had a meeting with his administrator to ask questions to find out why he/she needs Mr. Jones to turn in his assessments before using them with his senior class; there might have been an underlying problem with the assessments Mr. Jones uses that the administrator was wanting to straighten out before the British Literature class started. I like my job to much to just rebel against my boss, so I feel like Mr. Jones made a huge mistake!

What was Mr. Jones think the administrator would do with the assessments. I would assume that the administrator would like to see what his or her teachers have planned for students to do. I do not think it is unethical for an administrator to view assessments. Mr. Jones should allowed his administrator the opportunity to view his assessments if the assessments were available.

At my school, we have to sign out benchmark assessments with our instructional coach, in the same manner as signing out standardized state test. I think the test scandals around the world has caused administrators to stricken their policies about all test that provide data for analyzing student achievement.
