Alternatives to Standardized Tests in Reading Education: Cognitive Styles and Informal Measures.
Scales, Alice M.
Negro Educational Review, v38 n2-3 p99-106 Apr-Jul 1987

Informal tests seem to be better for both impulsive and reflective style students. Perhaps a combination of standardized and informal testing is appropriate for making educational decisions about students. (VM)
