The Real Testing Bias: The Role of Values in Educational Assessment.
Cizek, Gregory J.; Rachor, Robert E.
NASSP Bulletin, v78 n560 p83-93 Mar 1994
Although increased attention to testing has resulted in improved guidelines for measuring skills and interpreting test results, educators are confused about certain testing problems and appropriate ameliorative strategies. Changing from multiple-choice formats to authentic performances will not reform education. Highly valuable outcomes such as creative problem solving, responsible citizenship, team work, and independent thinking defy easy measurement. (24 references.) (MLH)
