The Distortion of Teaching and Testing: High-Stakes Testing and Instruction.
Madaus, George F.
Peabody Journal of Education, v65 n3 p29-46 Spr 1988
A "high-stakes" test can directly and powerfully influence how teachers teach and students learn. Six principles that describe the negative consequences of measurement-driven instruction are discussed, and the effect of these consequences on student and teacher behavior, as well as the test itself, is outlined.
