Old Tests in New Clothes.
Neill, Monty
Instructor, v109 n5 p31-34 Jan-Feb 2000
As standardized tests increase in importance but remain fundamentally unchanged, they will guarantee the continued narrowing of instruction (as teachers concentrate on preparing students to pass them). Short-answer questions keep the focus on isolated fragments of learning. Writing samples are treated as formulaic exercises. Today's schools sorely need quality performance assessment geared to authentic curriculum and instruction. (SM)
