This book is written for busy people who need to understand the information that is flooding them and find ways to interpret it. You may be a business executive, a medical doctor, a stay-at-home mother or father wanting to understand the Gallup poll results in the daily newspaper, or a student studying nursing, counseling, psychology, sociology, or even mathematics. Yet you need to quickly be brought into the world of research and data analysis. It does not require that you dedicate a year of your life to take a course in social-science research and quantitative data analysis. In fact, this book will not have formulas or require you to calculate mathematical functions. But you do need to have the dedication to try to understand what might be considered another language. You can do it at a pace that suits your lifestyle. You might want to take a look at the index at the end of the book to see if there are any terms you've been interested in or wondered about. It is very nontraditional in that its focus is on the concepts behind these processes rather than asking you to learn formulas and how to calculate data. If you have a desire to learn more about what is going on, there are many excellent texts in the references.

The Fractured Marketplace for Standardized Testing

Standardized testing in the United States has been increasing at a rapid pace in the last twenty-five years. The market for tests has not only been expanding rapidly, but has also been changing sharply in structure into a fractured marketplace. Indeed, one of the main features of this book is that the market for standardized testing is highly fractured - with segments of the market facing monopoly conditions, others facing oligopoly conditions and still others where near free-market conditions exist. One of the main premises of the book is that the structures of markets have strong implications for how those markets perform. While this notion is widely accepted among economists, it is not widely appreciated in educational research. A second motivation for the book is that very little scholarly attention has been focused on the standardized testing industry. This topic - the structure of the testing industry and implications for the quality of tests and test use - affects how we evaluate the learning of students, the effectiveness of teaching, the quality of schools and the educational health of the nation. Of particular concern to the authors is one vital aspect of test quality: test validity. This book is the most current and authoritative review and analysis of the market for standardized testing.
