Development of a Statement of Test Takers' Rights and Responsibilities.
Geisinger, Kurt F.
Various professional organizations whose members are involved in testing have written standards that acknowledge the rights of test takers. The Joint Committee on Testing Practices, composed of delegates from six professional associations, has produced an enumeration of rights and responsibilities of test takers. This document explains the historical events that led to the development of the draft document. There is a summary of the role of governmental agencies, professional standards, and state and federal guidelines on the practice of testing. The debate on whether participants should have feedback on all testing results is included. Both the rights of the test takers and their responsibilities are considered. It is hoped that this document will serve to improve the ability of the testing profession to advance society. Appendix 1 is the Rights and Responsibilities of the Test Takers: Guidelines and Expectations. (Contains 10 references.) (JDM)
