Standardised testing: Dilemmas and possibilities

This paper begins by looking at different perspectives on standardised testing. It then identifies some of the dilemmas involved with testing and considers how the NZCER project teams responsible for the redevelopment of new PAT tests in mathematics and reading responded to these and at the same time worked to produce new possibilities.
