Furnari, Emily C.; Whittaker, Jessica; Kinzie, Mable; DeCoster, Jamie – Journal of Psychoeducational Assessment, 2017
The No Child Left Behind Act requires that 95% of students in all public elementary and secondary schools are assessed in mathematics. Unfortunately, direct assessments of young students can be timely, costly, and challenging to administer. Therefore, policy makers have looked to indirect forms of assessment, such as teachers' ratings of student…
