The Impact of Assessment Policies on Minority Achievement and Participation in Teacher Education.
Simon, Diane J.
New Directions for Institutional Research, No. 65 (The Effect of Assessment on Minority Student Participation) v17 n1 p19-35 Spr 1990
Teacher testing has not enhanced the quality of the American teaching force, but rather has had a negligible effect on the quality of the White teacher force while diminishing the minority teacher-candidate pool. The new assessment policies and practices that exclude minorities are in direct conflict with democratic ideals. (MSE)
