The Uneasy Compromise: Bringing Together Testers and Teachers of English.
White, Edward M.
Teachers and test professionals must work together for responsible measurement in English to take place. Traditionally, they have refused to do so, a situation that has led to serious problems in at least three areas: research in the teaching of writing, classroom practice in teaching revision of writing, and some testing practices by such national organizations as the College Board, Educational Testing Service, American College Testing, and the National Assessment of Educational Progress. The English Placement Test developed by the faculty in the California State University and College systems represents a successful working model of the uneasy compromise teachers and testers can achieve. (Author/FL) Aspect of National Assessment (NAEP) dealt with in this document: Program Description.
