John Tanner is one our nation’s leading critics of standardized student testing.  In a provocative article for the American Association of School Administrators, he contends that standardized tests aren’t about instruction but, instead, were designed to rank order or distribute students to allow for meaningful comparisons within and among schools.  He serves as executive director of Test Sense in San Antonio, Texas, and is author of the book, The Pitfalls of Reform:  Its Incompatibility with Actual Improvement.
