Title: Problems with Standards-based Mathematics Tests PDF
Url: http://www.ams.sunysb.edu/~tucker/StandardsProb.pdf
Creator: Tucker, Alan, 1943 July 6
Publisher: Stony Brook University
Description: Alan Tucker, an Applied Math professor at Stony Brook University took it upon himself to analyze the reliability of the scoring of the Math A test, New York's standards-based exam. Tucker was part of the New York Board of Regents special panel which investigated the high failure rates on the June 2003 exam. He reports here on his findings regarding "flaws in annual math tests mandated by the No Child Left Behind Act." In particular, he is concerned about the likelihood that students scores on standards-based test can be compared over time at the level of precision needed to make decisions that come with high-stakes consequences. A short report and a full report are available from this website, explaining his model and statistical analysis.
