Developing Standardized Testing
Standardize testing has and still is a topic of debate. On the one hand, we want to measure student performance and sometimes need a means to compare students to one another or to a standardized baseline (i.e. college entrance criteria). On the other hand, a score on a standardize test may not offer a true and/or well-rounded picture of a student’s ability. In this discussion, you’ll examine both sides of this issue. Prior to completing this discussion read Hill (2017) and Paths of Learning #20 (2004).
