  1. Ethical Test Preparation in the Classroom

    Standardised testing is a common method of measuring students’ knowledge and skills, but the results may not be reliable if students are unfamiliar with the nuances and idiosyncrasies of the tests themselves. In Ethical test preparation in the classroom, Robert J Marzano, Christopher W Dodson, Julia A Simms and Jacob P Wipf expose the true nature of large-scale assessments. The authors analysed thousands of items from state and national tests in English, mathematics and science to help educators understand the way tests ask questions. They have used the results of their study to provide a practical approach for deepening students’ content knowledge and ethically preparing them to demonstrate that knowledge. By reading this book, F–12 teachers and administrators will gain insight into the architecture of test items and share that understanding with students to help them truly show what they know.
