High-Stakes Standardized Testing [WLO: 1] [CLOs: 2, 6]

One type of summative assessment that receives a lot of publicity is high-stakes standardized testing. We have probably all been in a position when we were required to take high-stakes standardized tests resulting in, either positive or negative consequences. For example, the results from a high-stakes standardized test could impact receiving a high school diploma, joining the military, or practicing in the teaching, medical, or legal field.

Some examples of high-stakes testing include:

  • ACT or SAT or GMAT
  • State specific tests
  • Measures of Academic Progress (MAP)
  • Praxis
  • Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB)
