Releasing Test Scores: Urgent or Unthinkable?
Jacobs, James W.
In this paper, the author reviews literature on the subject of releasing test scores and discusses constraints (in terms of test scores released and target groups receiving test scores) which he believes should govern such releases. The author suggests two phases for implementing release of test scores. One phase would involve parent conferences, districtwide appraisal programs of intelligence, districtwide appraisal in selected subject fields, and the appraisal data reported to parents by report cards. The other phase would be directed toward releasing test scores in relationship to salient characterists of the school system (teacher-pupil ratios, staff turnover statistics,etc.) that affect the learning of its clientele. The author expresses his preference for a community-school profile over the release of scores on a systemwide or a school-by-school basis. (JF)
