1. Making the Grades My Misadventures in the Standardized Testing Industry (Large Print 16pt) - Todd Farley

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 19.99  - Click book title for availability and further details

In this alternately amusing and appalling expos of the standardized test industry, fifteen - year veteran Todd Farley describes statisticians who make decisions about students without even looking at their test answers; state education officials willing to change the way tests are scored whenever they don't like the results; and massive, multi - national, for - profit testing companies who regularly opt for expediency and profit over the altruistic educational goals of teaching and learning. Although there are absurd moments - as when Farley and coworkers had to grade students based on how they described the taste of their favorite food - the enormous importance of standardized tests in the post ''No Child Left Behind'' era make this no laughing matter. ''This book is dynamite! The nice personal voice makes it utterly accessible and enticing, wholly apart from the terribly important ammunition it provides to those of us in the `testing wars' at national and local levels.'' - Jonathan Kozol, author of Savage Inequities
