Administration of Standardized Competency Tests: Does the Testing Environment Make a Difference?
Wongbundhit, Yuwadee
ERS Spectrum, v14 n2 p3-8 Spr 1996
To relieve overcrowded, distracting, and uncomfortable testing conditions, the Dade County (Florida) Public Schools began administering the High School Competency Test on two successive Saturdays, instead of on school days. Classrooms were used, and students received free breakfasts and lunches. The new arrangement improved student performance and participation rates without compromising test security. (MLH)
