McCauley, Rebecca J.; Swisher, Linda
Journal of Speech and Hearing Disorders, v49 n4 p338-48 Nov 1984
The paper discusses concepts fundamental to proper use of norm-referenced tests, considers common errors in the use, and suggests alternatives to norm-referenced testing for certain assessment purposes.
