Speaking Out: Law, Education and Politics. Proceedings of the Invitational Conference on Educational Assessment and Educational Policy (Princeton, New Jersey, March 4-5, 1974).
Educational Testing Service, Princeton, NJ. Center for Statewide Educational Assessment.
The conference speakers addressed themselves to the general themes of assessment and policy in education. Each speaker approached the subject in his own way. In broad terms, Albert Quie and Harold Ruvoldt, Jr. emphasize the urgency of measuring the needs of school children and finding effective ways to match resources to those needs; Henry Dyer, Robert Stake, and Henry Levin point out the problems of doing either or both of these things; and Michael Scriven and Joel Berke suggest how policymakers might proceed to bring about educational improvement.
