Drawing on her many years as an analyst for the ETS (Educational Testing Service), which develops and administers these exams, educator Rebecca Zwick offers the first balanced overview of the many-headed debate about the usefulness and reliability of standardized tests. Amidst the hysteria, pressure, and fear that surrounds college admissions,Fair Game?demystifies the world of testing to present a commonsense view of the system, warning that eliminating the tests -- as recently proposed in California -- may not level the playing field for minorities.
