Testing 1 2 3

In the below post "Mr Honner" draws attention to a rather important consideration when it comes to the standardized math testing that is now prevalent for evaluating student success: Are the tests ANY GOOD?

Noting that such tests are now used to evaluate not just students, but teachers and schools as well, he points out that mathematical errors, poor wording, and poor representation of subject matter, are more common than they ought be for quality, meaningful testing.
