About this product
- DescriptionAn authoritative work in defense of educational testing, pointing out that much research conducted by education insiders on the topic is based on ideological preference or profound self-interest. It explains and refutes many of the common criticisms of testing, and describes testing opponents' strategies, through case studies of Texas and the SAT.

His work on testing has been published in Evaluation Review, the Industrial-Organizational Psychologist, and Educational and Psychological Measurement. Herbert J.
