State Test Results Are Predictable
Tienken, Christopher H.
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v50 n4 p154-156 2014
Out-of-school, community demographic and family-level variables have an important influence on student achievement as measured by large-scale standardized tests. Studies described here demonstrated that about half of the test score is accounted for by variables outside the control of teachers and school administrators. The results from these studies raise serious questions about the validity of state test results to judge student learning and the quality of teaching and leadership.
