Teachers should use the same curriculum-based measurement manuals for testing students regardless if they are in rural or urban environments. Teachers should be following the same curriculum. There should not be enough of a difference to warrant the use of different measurement manuals for testing. Basic education curriculum should be the same throughout the country.
I think that teachers in rural environments should use the same curriculum-based measurement manuals to test their students as teachers from urban environments. While the locations might be different, there shouldn't be a difference in terms of the standard by which students are graded and tested on with their education.
Of course they should. I do not like what this question implies, which is that students in rural environments are some special kind of stupid. While they may be lacking in street smarts, their brains still function the same way. Math problems and chemistry problems still work the same. Their education should be the same.
No, teachers in rural environments should not use the same curriculum-based measurement manuals to test their students as teachers from urban environments, because they have different programs. The students also have different needs, and likely receive education in a different way. It is inaccurate and unfair to try to make a direct comparison.
