Standardized Testing Issues: Teachers' Perspectives. Reference and Resource Series.
National Education Association, Washington, DC.
The problems associated with standardized testing are illustrated in this collection of articles. Alternatives to current practices and strategies for change are suggested. The contributors discuss the roles and responsibilities of groups concerned with student evaluation systems, the testing of minority group and non-English-speaking students, problems in using students' test results for evaluation of teachers, and teachers' perspectives on testing alternatives. The 1975 report of the National Education Association (NEA) Task Force on Testing and a report of the 1972 NEA Conference on Civil and Human Rights in Education are appended. (Author/MV)
