This is one of the funniest YouTube videos I have ever seen (excluding a few about dogs and cats).

I promise you, you will not be disappointed. Watch it and forward it to your superintendent or your school board. Remember how I always say that VAM is Junk Science. Here is one of the world’s leading assessment experts, and his message mocks VAM as just plain Junk.

It features the great assessment expert W. James Popham as pitchman for a line of products guaranteed to raise your students’ test scores. Some of them are chewable, some are drinkable and last five hours (he warns that if the effect lasts for longer than five hours, call your physician at once).

Please watch this. You will never think about value-added assessments or rubrics the same way again.
