Teaching to the Test?
Popham, W. James
Educational Leadership, v58 n6 p16-20 Mar 2001
Curriculum-teaching, requiring teachers to direct instruction toward a specific body of content knowledge or cognitive skills, is preferable to item-teaching organized around test items. Detecting inappropriate test-preparation practices among teachers is difficult. Curriculum-teaching, if effective, will elevate students' scores and mastery of skills. (MLH)
