Towards Statewide Educational Assessment.
Selden, David
The source of most of the opposition to educational assessment is fear on the part of administrators and teachers that assessment will be used as an instrument of evaluation. Assessment plans make it impossible to identify individual teachers or schools. Thus, the fear that someone may be penalized because of a bad assessment is not realistic. Furthermore, all school systems at present do a great deal of testing. If school authorities wanted to use test results as evaluating instruments, they already have plenty of information to go on. The main problem in all assessment programs is that results are expected too quickly. Emphasis should be on longitudinal studies and comparison after multiple completions of the testing cycle.
