Standardized Tests: Do They Measure General Cognitive Abilities?
Marzano, Robert J.
NASSP Bulletin, v74 n526 p93-101 May 1990
A recent study analyzing 6,942 items from the Stanford achievement batteries determined that few general cognitive operations were included in the items analyzed. The general cognitive operations that were found had little to do with the items' difficulty. Students are not being taught certain necessary, but untested, cognitive skills. Includes 23 references.
