Synopsis

Here's a fresh idea from an experienced testing professional that addresses the problem of the overuse of standardized testing. Elford argues that so-called test-based reform has given rise to the 'cram curriculum' and turned schools into test-prep centers. Overlooked are the classroom teachers, who observe the actual work of students and are the primary and richest source of information on learning. Beyond Standardized Testing lays out a better approach to accountability using standards, teacher judgments, and the tools of the information age.

George W. Elford manages CAP, Inc. an assessment service based in Potomac, Maryland. He retired in 1995 after a twenty-year career at the Education Testing Service where he directed field offices in Boston, Evanston, and Washington, D.C. The ideas developed in this present work can be traced back to a number of field service projects in 'curriculum monitoring'_a forerunner of the instructional management information system.
