Lomax, Richard G.; And Others
Journal of Negro Education, v64 n2 p171-85 Spr 1995
Examines mandated testing impact on curriculum and instruction in mathematics and science for minority students. Survey responses from 2,229 math and science teachers of minority classes and interviews with 289 urban educators show tests are not adequately sampling higher-order thinking or high-level conceptual or procedural knowledge in either subject. Teachers of high-minority classes reported more negative impacts. (GR)
