High-Stakes Testing: Worth the Price?
Gordon, Stephen P.; Reese, Marianne
Journal of School Leadership, v7 n4 p345-68 Jul 1997
In this study, over 100 teachers completed open-ended surveys on how they prepare students for the Texas Assessment of Academic Skills and the test's effects on students, teachers, and schools. High-stakes testing has become the object rather than the measure of teaching and learning, negatively affecting curriculum, teacher decision making, instruction, student learning, school climate, and student motivation.
