The emphasis on standardized testing as part of the federal No Child Left Behind Act leaves teachers feeling restricted and does not encourage them to improve their teaching effectiveness or help to close student-achievement gaps, a survey of teachers concludes.

The nationwide poll of 5,600 K-12 teachers, conducted by the New York City-based Teachers Network, found that 42 percent of respondents reported that standardized tests are not a helpful tool for improving their teaching, and that just 1 percent think standardized testing is an effective way to assess the quality of schools.
