High-Stakes Research - The authors challenge the findings of the study published by Audrey Amrein and David Berliner that claimed to find no correlation between states' high-stakes test scores and their NAEP scores over the same period of time. Raymond and Hanushek argue that the researchers did not apply sound statistical practices, and reported results in a manner slanted to disparage states' use of high-stakes assessments. The authors also present the results of their own analysis of states' NAEP and high-stakes test scores, which report a positive relationship between states' results on NAEP and high-stakes assessments.

Hanushek, Education Next, Summer 2003)...
