More Description

This easy-to-read-and-understand book helps parents become more knowledgeable about educational testing and its implications for their children. Parents will gain confidence and can become more completely involved in their children's education, carry out meaningful two-way communication with educators, and more accurately interpret their children's test results.

Learn About:
-- The proper use and misuse of standardized tests
-- Which classroom tests help students, and which don't
-- What information (and assumptions) teachers use in grading students
-- How to evaluate teachers
-- The pressure to improve test scores -- and its consequences

Each chapter closes with a brief summary, follow-up activities, and a list of resources -- books, articles, videotapes -- parents can (tactfully) bring to the attention of their child's teacher or school administrator.
