The Misuse of Tests for Retention.
Hartke, Karen
Thrust for Educational Leadership, v28 n3 p22-24 Jan-Feb 1999
Former California Governor Pete Wilson's "social promotion" package, requiring districts to adopt new promotion policies based on state-mandated test results, is misguided. All retention or promotion decisions should be supported by multiple forms of evidence. Test scores should be buttressed by other information, such as grades and teacher recommendations.
