Open Access Graduate Research Paper
The push for excellence in education has accelerated during the 1980's. As a result, there is renewed emphasis on using standardized achievement tests in American schools. Every school district in the United States requires some sort of standardized achievement test (Sproull & Zubrow, 1981). In a report to the 1980 National Invitational Conference, Jennie Yeh, Joan Herman, and Lawrence M. Rudner stated that every child will complete at least six full batteries of standardized achievement tests before graduating from high school. The results and use of these results has become a national concern to parents, teachers and others involved in educating children in the United States.
