On Misuse of Testing: A Conversation with George Madaus.
Brandt, Ron
Educational Leadership, v46 n7 p26-29 Apr 1989
In this interview, George Madaus explains how the misuse of tests corrupts the inferences drawn from them. He calls for cost-benefit evaluations of high stakes tests and challenges educators to seek better accountability methods, test student samples, use multiple indicators, and include teacher judgment in the process.
