May Day Testing Opportunity
My dear Newsletterites,
There is a Washington Post article that provides a salient description of testing that you may want to download and keep forever.
Journalist Valerie Strauss, with liberal assistance from educational researcher/author Gerald Bracey, has researched the testing process and gives clear descriptions of how the terms reliability and validity are used. Anyone reading about testing or attempting to research test quality will profit from having this reference.
I would suggest bookmarking the article, too. Eventually it will go into the Washington Post archives and may be a bit tricky to track down.
It can be found right now at:
The article is:

One in an occasional series looking at the culture of testing.
NOTE: The Washington Post provides a “printer friendly” opportunity that generates a clean copy for your records.
Happy May Day,
