Results of SurveyUSA Mkt Research Study #21615
 
In Colorado, 63% of Voters Want Fewer Standardized Tests Administered to Students, Just 11% Say Such Tests are Strongly Effective:

SurveyUSA interviewed 706 state of Colorado adults for the Colorado Education Association. Of the 706 adults, 600 were registered to vote in the state of Colorado, including 219 registered voters who are parents of school-aged children. Interviews were completed 09/12/14 through 09/16/14. Voters say that the purpose of standardized testing should be to assess the academic progress of students, but of those who hold this view, 86% say that standardized tests are either not effective (34%) or only somewhat effective (52%). When voters are told that teachers can spend 30% of their time administering standardized tests, voters say that teachers should spend a smaller percentage of their time doing so. 63% of of voters say they would like to see less testing, 28% would like to see the same amount of testing as there is today, and 5% would like to see more standardized testing.

Statement of Methodology: SurveyUSA is an independent, non-partisan, apolitical research company that conducts opinion surveys for media, academic institutions, commercial clients, governments and agencies. SurveyUSA opinion research is conducted multi-mode. Respondents who have a home (landline) telephone are interviewed by phone, using the recorded voice of a professional announcer. The youngest male is requested on approximately 60% of calls to home phones, the youngest adult is requested on approximately 40% of calls. This method of intra-household selection reduces the potential for age and gender imbalance in the unweighted sample. Re-attempts are made to busy signals, no-answers and answering machines. For surveys using random-digit-dial (RDD) to call landline phones, such as this survey, sample is purchased from SSI of Shelton CT. Respondents who do not use a home telephone are interviewed on an electronic device, which means that SurveyUSA displays the questions visually on the respondent's smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer. Sample for respondents who do not use a home telephone is purchased from United Sample of Encino CA. Where meaningful, SurveyUSA indicates the percentage of respondents who use a home phone and the percentage who do not, and crosstabs by this distinction. If sample of adults is drawn from SSI, responses are minimally weighted to U.S. Census targets for gender, age and race. Target (cell) weighting is used. Where necessary, questions and answer choices are rotated to prevent order bias, recency and latency effects. Interviews were conducted in English. SurveyUSA assigns to each question within the instrument a theoretical margin of sampling error, but such error is useful only in theory. Though commonly cited in the presentation of research results, "sampling error" is only one of many types of error that may influence the outcome of an opinion research study. More practical concerns include the way in which questions are worded and ordered, the inability to contact some, the refusal of others to be interviewed, and the difficulty of translating each questionnaire into all possible languages and dialects. Non-sampling errors cannot be quantified. This statement conforms to the principles of disclosure as recommended by the National Council on Public Polls (NCPP).

6Some people in Colorado are saying that the level of standardized tests taking place in our public schools is becoming excessive and cutting into too much teaching and learning time. Do you support more testing, less testing or about the same amount of testing in Colorado public schools?

6Some people in Colorado are saying that the level of standardized tests taking place in our public schools is becoming excessive and cutting into too much teaching and learning time. Do you support more testing, less testing or about the same amount of testing in Colorado public schools?
