Is It Just Me, or Are There Other Parents and Teachers Out There Confused about SOL Reading Assessments?
Bintz, William P.
Reading Horizons, v38 n4 p279-92 1998
Describes an incident involving the author, his daughter, and sample items from a Standards of Learning (SOL) assessment. Elaborates on the author's increasing confusion with SOL assessments, especially in reading. Proposes that educators spend less time testing kids and more time "testing their theories" so that assessments better reflect recent advances in reading and learning theory. (PA)
