Standardised Testing--In Whose Interests?
Wyatt-Smith, Claire
English in Australia, n122 p89-93 Jul 1998
Addresses the tension between the two assessment goals of measurement and instruction and how they relate to standardized testing in general. Suggests that this tension is writ large in Australia's current literacy-policy environment, with the scales tipping to the measurement goal. Argues that these goals need to be aligned in the best interests of students, parents, and the wider community. (RS)
