An Assessment of the Quality of High School Mathematics Tests.
Petrosko, Joseph M.; Hufano, Linda
An assessment was made of the psychometric and educational quality of all high school level tests of general mathematics, applied mathematics, algebra and geometry. The study was part of a large-scale project involving evaluations of all standardized secondary school tests available in the United States. Assessments revealed most tests to be low in many types of validity and reliability. Tests of general mathematics, which included arithmetic, fared the best across 39 criteria of test quality. Test developers are not meeting many basic standards of test quality in constructing mathematics tests. (Author)
