Wideen, Marvin F.; O'Shea, Thomas; Pye, Ivy; Ivany, George
Canadian Journal of Education, v22 n4 p428-44 Fall 1997
The relationship between high stakes testing and the teaching of science was studied through case studies of two school districts and interviews and observation with 80 teachers and with principals, students, and district personnel in grades 8, 10, and 12 in British Columbia (Canada). Examinations discouraged teaching that promoted inquiry and active student learning. (SLD)
