Tonya Moon, an assistant professor at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville and part of a research team with the National Center for the Gifted and Talented, did a two-year study of state standardized tests and gifted students.Research shows more teachers spending time on test preparation, including using worksheets mimicking state test questions, Moon said."Those things that are not assessed on the test no longer have a place in the classroom," she said.
Moon, who surveyed 2,500 teachers and visited 50 classrooms, said cuts in art, physical education, and field trips -- even science and social studies -- make school less engaging for gifted students.Moon reports some administrators have so pressured teachers that standards "have become more like a checklist."
Moon doesn't blame tests and standards."It is the way in which they are being used," she said.
That's a key point.

"There is no process that is perfect, and tests can be biased, so you have to put in mechanisms to control for them," she said.
