Contradictions of School Reform : Educational Costs of Standardized Testing (00 Edition)by Linda M. Mcneil
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Parents and community activists around the country complain that the education system is failing our children. They point to students' failure to master basic skills, even as standardized testing is widely employed in efforts to improve the educational system. i Contradictions of Reform /i is a provocative look into the reality, for students as well as teachers, of standardized testing. A detailed account of how student "improvement" and teacher "effectiveness" are evaluated, i Contradictions of Reform /i argues compellingly that the preparation of students for standardized tests engenders teaching methods that vastly compromise the quality of education.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 285-295) and index.
