Spotlight on High-Stakes Testing. No. 1 in the Harvard Education Letter Spotlight Series
Harvard Education Press
This inaugural volume of our Spotlight Series features recent "Harvard Education Letter" articles on testing and new reports never before published on this important topic. Contributors address such issues as how educators can manage the "avalanche" of tests; whether the benefits of high-stakes tests justify the risks to students; what "real accountability" means for educators; and how teaching and learning can suffer when schools focus too heavily on test preparation. The Spotlight Series combines classic "Harvard Education Letter" articles with all-new reports on the latest education research and practice that you won't find anywhere else. [From the Editors of the Harvard Education Letter.]
