Pressures for accountability have resulted in increased school testing.
true
The rapid growth of minimum competency testing requirements in the 1970's and early 1980's was stimulated by widely held belief that high school grads often lacked essential skills.
true
There is public support for the use of test results to compare schools.
true
The "Lake Wobegon Effect" clearly demonstrated that test based comparisons of schools has improved education.
false
Concerns that accountability leads to teaching to the test have contributed to calls for increased reliance on performance based assessments.
true
Content standards specify the minimum score required to pass a test.
false
The belief that testing and assessment shapes instruction has led to increased emphasis on performance assessments.
agree
Authentic assessment is routinely achieved by the introduction of performance assessments.
disagree
Many proponents of performance assessments accept the idea that "what you test is what you get".
agree
Tasks requiring extended responses have been the target of most criticisms of testing and assessment.
disagree
Anything that can be measured by a performance assessment task could also be measured by a multiple choice test.
disagree
The National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) enables schools to compare the performance of the students to the nation as a whole.
false
NAEP has provided a means of monitoring trends in achievement of students for 25 years.
true
In addition to national results, NAEP now provides results for state by state comparisons on a voluntary basis.
true
NAEP collects achievement data for students by both age and grade level.
true
Comparisons of nations based on international assessments are as trustworthy as comparisons of regions of the country based on NAEP results.
false
Comparibility of results in international assessments is assured by translating assessments to the languages spoken in different countries.
false
Computers are especially useful for adaptive testing.
agree
Computer administered simulations of problems enable the measurement of complex skills not readily measured by paper and pencil tests.
agree
Despite concern about the quality of scholl programs, there has been a demand for less testing and assessment.
disagree
Computerized adaptive tests increase the efficiency by reducing the number of items that need to be administered to achieve reliable measurement for a given test taker.
agree
The focus on the consequences of testing and assessment has decreased in recent years.
disagree
The computer provides the potential to present simulations that can measure the processes that students use to solve problems.
agree
Many of the criticisms of testing are the result of misinterpretation and misuse of test scores.
agree
A common misinterpretation of scores on tests and assessments is to assume they measure more than they do.
agree
Testing does not have any undesireable effects on students.
disagree
If a particular group receives lower scores on a test, it means the test is biased against members of that group.
disagree
It is good practice to post scores on standardized tests so that students in a class can see how their performance compares to that of their peers.
disagree
Test anxiety may lower the performance of some students.
agree
