Introduction and Overview of High Stakes Testing: New Challenges and Opportunities for School Psychology
Shriberg, David; Kruger, Louis J.
Journal of Applied School Psychology, v23 n2 p1-6 Jul 2007
This overview article addresses the different meanings of high takes testing, which takes into consideration accountability at different levels, such as teacher, school, and state. In this regard, "high-stakes" may mean different things in different states or countries. We will advance an argument for why school psychologists should (a) be actively involved with implementation of high stakes assessment programs, (b) work to prevent the potential negative consequences of high stakes testing, and (c) advocate for the appropriate use of these assessments. Finally, we will offer a preview of each article. Collectively, the articles provide an overview of why high stakes testing is relevant to the profession of school psychology and how high stakes testing has created new opportunities for the practice of school psychology.
