Validating High-Stakes Testing Programs.
Kane, Michael
Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, v21 n1 p31-41 Spr 2002
Makes the point that the interpretations and use of high-stakes test scores rely on policy assumptions about what should be taught and the content standards and performance standards that should be applied. The assumptions built into an assessment need to be subjected to scrutiny and criticism if a strong case is to be made for the validity of the proposed interpretation and use. (SLD)
