The Extent and Character of System-Wide Student Testing in the United States.
Phelps, Richard P.
Educational Assessment, v4 n2 p89-121 1997
Studies of the extent of standardized testing in U.S. schools in the early 1980s to 1990s were reviewed. All show the amount of systemwide testing to be less than two days per year. Methodological issues are explored, and the extent-of-testing estimates are updated to about 1995 through more recent research. (SLD)
