Why Not a National Test for Everyone?
Smith, Michael K.
Phi Delta Kappan, v91 n5 p54-58 Feb 2010
A national test can be designed for everyone--students, workers, etc.--that would measure their achievement in mathematics and other subjects and provide a score, normed at various levels from preschool to graduate school. The Internet and computer technology would enable both widespread administration of the test and access to scores that can be used by college admissions and employers, as well as allow construction of the test to be more transparent and democratic.
