Test Use and Abuse
Tienken, Christopher H.
Kappa Delta Pi Record, v51 n4 p155-158 2015
The ubiquitous use of standardized test results to make varied judgments about educators, students, and schools within the public school system raises concerns of validity. If the test results have not been validated for making multiple determinations, then the decisions made about educators, students, schools, and school districts based on the results could be flawed. The author discusses specific standards that guide the research-based uses of test results.
