Measuring School Improvement: A Few Experientially Based Words of Caution.
Scollay, Susan J.; Everson, Susan Toft
Urban Review, v17 n3 p201-09 1985
Discusses the use of standardized achievement scores to measure the quality of practice-oriented school improvement activities in school districts. Focuses on four areas of concern: the multiple functions of schooling; documentation and data collection; real world complexities; and ethics. Recommends that cautions be taken against exclusive reliance on quantitative measures. (KH)
