None of the Above: The Promise and Peril of High-Stakes Testing.
Hess, Frederick M.; Brigham, Frederick
American School Board Journal, v187 n1 p26-29 Jan 2000

Costs and benefits include increased equity, clear and focused curricula, efficient use of resources, achievement-based school personnel evaluations, limited local decision making, narrow curriculum, and favored course content.
