Educational Evaluation and Accountability: A Review of Quality Assurance Efforts.
Madaus, George F.; Stufflebeam, Daniel L.
American Behavioral Scientist, v27 n5 p649-72 May-Jun 1984
Formal programs of quality assurance have not characterized the field of education. There is, however, a long history of attempts to evaluate schools and to hold school personnel accountable for the education of children. Students' standardized test scores should not be regarded as a major criterion for evaluating educational quality. (RM)
