Estimating the Cost of Standardized Student Testing in the United States.
Phelps, Richard P.
Journal of Education Finance, v25 n3 p343-80 Win 2000
Describes and contrasts different methods of estimating costs of standardized testing. Using a cost-accounting approach, compares gross and marginal costs and considers testing objects (test materials and services, personnel and student time, and administrative/building overhead). Social marginal costs of replacing existing tests with a national exam are minuscule. (Contains 38 references.) (MLH)
