High-Stakes Testing and Latina/o Students: Creating a Hierarchy of College Readiness
Ruecker, Todd
Journal of Hispanic Higher Education, v12 n4 p303-320 Oct 2013
This article examines how high-stakes testing policies can constrain the way teachers at predominately Latina/o high schools teach literacy and subsequently influence the success of Latina/o students at college. It is based on a year and a half study of seven Latina/o students making transition from a high school to a community college or university on the U.S.-Mexico border.
