Standardized Testing: Measurement of Academic Achievement
Weaver, Keshia
Online Submission
Standardized testing has been a very important issue in education today. Many schools use the testing score to determine whether a child should continue to the next grade level. As we review the methods teachers use to prepare students for these types of tests, the amount of instruction time utilized to cover test materials, and the level of emphasis placed on these test the question of students' performance as well as academic success is a rising question. It is important for educational stakeholders to determine if students are learning the necessary materials needed to prepare them to move into the next grade and if the results from the test used accurately measures students' individualized success and academic performance. Another issue that sheds light on the importance of this question is how much of this information is retained by students after the test is over from each year?
