Beyond The Test Score.
Reilly, David H.
Two factors are responsible for the abuses in testing of children: emotional expectations and a misdirected educational training system. The former is most prevalent among those who are not thoroughly trained in testing and test interpretation, and should be responded to by maintaining strict certification standards. The second reason for abuses in testing, a misdirected educational training system, could be partially resolved by strengthening the competencies of educators in such areas as how to achieve a sense of self competence and identity, how to get along with others, how to work within and with a group without losing a sense of self, how to rear children, how to use leisure time, and how to decide on a vocation. Teachers should be trained for involvement in an educational enterprise that deals with values and people, not just academic matters. (Author)
