A Critique of Test Standardization
Orasanu, Judith; And Others
Social Policy, 8, 2, 61-67, Sep-Oct 77
Sets criteria for social and educational adequacy of standardized tests. Drawing an analogy, the author says people would not subject themselves to medical tests unless they could anticipate a diagnosis and, if all is not lost, a treatment. Says standardized tests are not diagnostic, serve to maintain inequality, and should not be continued. (Author/GC)
