Governor’s Weekly Message: Supporting Student Progress Through Effective Assessments

Former Governor Jack Markell (2009-2017) | Kent County | New Castle County | Sussex County | Date Posted: Friday, March 13, 2015



Wilmington – In his weekly message, filmed at William Penn High School, Governor Markell highlights a statewide effort announced earlier this week to reduce school testing.

“The fact that assessments play an important role in supporting our students means we must invest the time and resources in getting them right,” said Governor Markell. “While effective tests are vital, unnecessary tests don’t provide educators with valuable information, and they take away valuable teaching time. By supporting our most effective assessments and eliminating others, we’ll better support our educators and students, and we’ll keep Delaware moving forward.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is available on:
