Putting the Standardized Test Debate in Perspective.
Worthen, Blaine R.; Spandel, Vicki
Educational Leadership, v48 n5 p65-69 Feb 1991
Examines seven criticisms of standardized achievement tests, including their failure to promote student learning, predict individual students' performance, and match test content with curriculum content. However, a teacher's insights into her students' learning, combined with properly interpreted standardized test results, can provide a balanced judgment. (MLH)
