Expansion, Quality, and Testing in American Education.
Resnick, Daniel P.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n59 p5-14 Fall 1987
Offers a historical perspective on testing in U.S. education, arguing that nationwide emphases on student assessment have been linked to vacillations in public confidence in the nation's educational system. Compares the focus on assessment that followed the expansion of secondary education between 1890 and 1935 with the current assessment movement. (DMM)
