Tests--Fallible Indicators of Educational Quality.
Denoyer, Richard A.; White, Michael
NASSP Bulletin, v74 n523 p49-52 Feb 1990
Presuming that test scores can accurately reflect educational quality is naive and potentially dangerous. Sophisticated statistical procedures cannot fully separate the effects of confounding background variables (ethnicity, language proficiency, or poverty) from test scores. A broad-based assessment model relying on multiple indices and longitudinal design is proposed. Includes eight references. (MLH)
