Position Paper on Standardized Testing.
Kennedy, E. G.; And Others
Recommendations of an Ad Hoc Advisory Committee relating to standardized testing in a state educational system are presented. The paper first discusses the concepts of measurement, evaluation, and standardized testing. Then follows discussions of Test Development, Qualifications of Test Users, General Use of Tests, The Use of Standardized Tests for Individual Assessment, and The Use of Standardized Tests for Program Assessment. It is recommended that: (1) each local educational agency establish systematic procedures for planning, implementing, and evaluating the testing programs within the LEA; (2) a permanent committee be established with the responsibility of examining state-wide issues concerning testing and/or individual and program assessment.
