Abstract

This Policy Information Report discusses ways that various assessments can be linked so that performance can be reported in common terms, while cautioning against relying on one test or believing that statistical methods can make all tests comparable. While supplies last, print copies can be ordered from the Policy Information Center for $6.50. ED 353 302.
