Choosing to Comply: How Teachers and Students Used Tests in a Bilingual Charter Elementary School
McGrew, Sean
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, University of Pennsylvania
This study examines teacher and student talk about tests and test data in a bilingual charter elementary school over two academic years. Considering tests as conveying information, the analysis proposes categories to distinguish different kinds and uses of test information. Kinds of test information include that conveyed by the existence of the test, the content of the test, and the results from the test. Types of use include deciding what material to cover or re-teach, assigning students to levels and groups, and offering evidence to various audiences.
