Educational Testing Integrity: Why Educators and Students Cheat and How To Prevent It.
Cizek, Gregory J.
Sound testing practices and the high-quality information that can result are helpful to those who have oversight, responsibility, or interest in American education. To the extent that tests provide high-quality information, they form the basis for making accurate judgments about individual students. It is equally true, however, that factors which attenuate the validity of tests or degrade the usefulness of the information they yield represent threats to sound decision making. This chapter addresses both student cheating and educator cheating, and recommended strategies for preventing cheating. (Contains 38 references and 1 table.) (GCP)
