This article suggests Pearson's CCSS-ELA exams are not good. As to the problems associated with administering annual nationally standardized tests to tens of thousands of children, yes indeed. It's a bureaucratic mountain created out of the molehill (i.e. pinheaded notion) of 'accountability'-- which means pie--in-the-sky 'closing the inequality gap' to some, a chance to close/ privatize schools to others, bust teachers' unions to others, an ed-corporation boondoggle to others.
