Teaching To The Test

I haven't gone away.  I've just been involved with other projects.  You'll see some more new material here soon.

In the meantime, I'll share this infographic about the tyranny of tests:

  2. I would add something to the sections about cheating. On more subjective text exercises, standardized test scorers sometimes change their original scores so they can meet reliability and validity standards for scoring. If you want more details on that, read "Making the Grades: My Misadventures in the Standardized Testing Industry", by Todd Farley.

  3. Anon: Thanks for telling me about Farley. And you're right about score-changing: I've actually witnessed it.
