These newsletters, produced during the second year of activity of a standing committee of the National Council of Teachers of English, focus on standardized testing as it affects the teaching of English. The first newsletter describes committee activities and priorities and includes a bibliography of information on tests and evaluation. The other seven deal in turn with specific issues: minimal competencies and measures of competence, how to interpret standardized test results, phonics instruction, competency testing and bilingual/bicultural students, implications of the national Assessment of Educational Progress, strategies of response to the minimum competency movement, and implications of the Scholastic Aptitude Test score-decline report. (AA) Aspect of National Assessment (NAEP) dealt with in this document: Results (Interpretation).
