Shafer, Gregory
English Journal, v86 n5 p39-41 Sep 1997
Cautions against a statewide proficiency test based on the author's experience as a high school English teacher with the Michigan High School Proficiency Test. Discusses how, while meant to foster accountability, rigor, and standards, the test instead creates panic, uniformity, and a subversion of sound language arts practice. Discusses how this and other such tests hinder sensible English instruction. (SR)
