Arithmetic Teacher, v40 n1 p18-22 Sep 1992
Examined 6 widely used grade-8 standardized tests for content, required processes, and level to determine their alignment with the 5-8 NCTM "Curriculum and Evaluation Standards." Concluded that these tests inadequately covered the 5-8 standards. A follow-up study examined items from newly developed and foreign tests to demonstrate the existence of items that reflect the standards. (MDH)
