The Trouble with Testing.
Andersen, Susan R.
Young Children, v53 n4 p25-29 Jul 1998
Describes experiences of three second graders taking standardized achievement tests. Maintains that many children lose learning time and confidence over test results that are not adequately explained to parents. Argues that samples of children's work over time better document growth and that young children should be viewed in terms of widely held age-related expectations. Delineates alternatives for student assessment. (KB)
