Four Perspectives on Educational Assessment.
Paris, Scott G.
International Journal of Disability, Development and Education, v39 n2 p95-105 1992
Educational achievement testing is discussed from four perspectives: (1) political accountability; (2) parental need for information on children's academic achievement; (3) the undue influence of achievement tests on curricula and instruction; and (4) students' views of testing. It is concluded that standardized testing has an overall negative impact. Suggestions for improving assessment are offered. (Author/DB)
