Calfee, Robert
Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, v2 n4 p11-12 Win 1983
Florida mandated high school competency tests in 1978. Evidence presented in the court case of Debra P. versus Turlington indicated students learn what they are taught. Low failure districts reported more concentration on basic skills. The issue of educational equity versus educational excellence has not been more resolved. (DWH)
