Rethinking "High Stakes": Lessons from the United States and England and Wales.
Firestone, William A.; Mayrowetz, David
Teachers College Record, v102 n4 p724-49 Aug 2000
Some of the six themes about high stakes testing, based on English, Welsh, and American research, include: not all stakes are perceived as equally high; pressure to respond to tests comes from more than formal stakes; external pressure is useful for changing content taught; and external pressure is less effective in changing instructional strategy than content taught.
