Tuman, Myron C.
Journal of General Education, v31 n2 p122-28 Sum 1979
Presents arguments by Robert Lowe and Matthew Arnold on the 19th century British "Payment by Results" Plan, whereby schools received funds for students who passed minimal competency tests. Emphasizes that the Victorian experience produced acrimonious teachers with low morale and encourages contemporary minimal testing advocates not to repeat past mistakes. (CAM)
