Taking Aim at Testing.
Rothman, Robert
American School Board Journal, v183 n2 p27-30 Feb 1996
This excerpt from "Measuring Up: Standards, Assessment, and School Reform" points out the limits of norm-referenced tests and discusses the pitfalls of making testing a high-stakes enterprise. Points out that the emphasis on standardized testing, and the push for school districts to score well, often has an inordinate and detrimental effect on minority and at-risk youth. (MLF)
