Bibliography of Test Criticism.
Pasanella, Ann K.; And Others
This is a selected compilation of 47 items relating to criticisms of tests and testing. The items cover the period of ten years immediately preceding the year 1966 and are held to be scholarly writings almost without exception. The books and articles listed carry extensive annotations and focus on the following aspects of tests and testing: encouragement of intellectual conformity; erosion of individual freedom of choice; exertion of undue influence on education; invasion of individual privacy; and, concealment of true character by masquerading as scientific instruments. The sources of strain in the themes of these books and articles is thought to be three-sided: the tests themselves; the test users; and, the test makers. (RJ)
