Abstract:

Everyone from school principals to teachers to parents nationwide is concerned about standardized testing. Standardized testing has become the bete noir of parents, students, faculty and administrators in relation to education today. Every year, millions of children must take state-mandated, standardized tests, the results of which can profoundly affect their futures, the standing of their schools and districts, even the career prospects of their teachers, and the administrators who run school systems. Parents are often at a loss in the face of these tests and how to help their children with them. This book will go a long way toward assuaging these apprehensions. What Every Parent Must Know About Standardized Tests will explain to parents clearly, simply, and in detail just what these tests are all about - what the tests are, what scores mean, how to interpret results, and how to compare different standardized tests.; Written by an experienced psychologist who has researched the development of psychological tests and who teaches standardized testing issues at the university level, the book will give balanced, impartial, informed answers to parents' concerns in this controversial area.
