Informing Test Takers.
Schafer, William D.
Three groups of persons are involved in the testing enterprise: test producers, test users, and test takers. A wide literature is available to guide the first two groups, but only recently have measurement professionals considered the interests of test takers in any careful way. The content of this chapter is presented as a set of 26 recommendations. These are intended as positive statements or guidelines for test users to consider as they develop, administer, score, and interpret assessments. The 26 guidelines are grouped according to the four assessment functions: development, administration, scoring, and interpretation. (GCP)
