Urban High School Students' Perspectives on Test-Centered Curriculum
Wasserberg, Martin J.; Rottman, Amy
American Secondary Education, v44 n3 p56-71 Sum 2016
The purpose of this study was to examine African American and Latino student perceptions on test-centered curricular protocols in the urban high school context. Data collection occurred through observations, classroom dialogue initiated by the researchers, and individual student interviews throughout an academic semester. Findings suggest that test-centered curricular protocols contribute to an environment that is susceptible to stereotype threat effects and decreased self-efficacy.
