Examined the influence of state-level testing on high school social studies teachers' practice. Classroom observations of a specific unit and teacher interviews before and after the unit were used to examine the role of a state test on teachers' practice. While the test influenced teachers' instruction, it interacted with other factors, especially teachers' views on subject matter and learners. (SM)
