Practice Tests and Study Guides: Do They Help? Are They Ethical? What Is Ethical Test Preparation Practice?
Perlman, Carole L.
The increasing use of high-stakes tests has focused attention on test preparation activities. The term test preparation can apply to a number of different practices that vary on the degree to which they are defensible. Although some test preparation is legitimate, there are concerns that certain test preparation activities may have a negative impact on students' education by causing narrowing of the curriculum and overemphasis on test-taking skills and particular assessment formats. This chapter explores these topics and provides suggesting for promoting good test preparation practice. (Contains 19 references.) (GCP)
