Overview

Because cheating increases in direct proportion testing as surely as smuggling does in proportion to tariffs, Cizek (educational measurement and evaluation, U. of North Carolina-Chapel Hill) offers teachers, principals, school board members, and policy makers a collection of information on the rising practice and its prevention. He writes in a conversational tone unbroken by citations, and includes practical illustrations of the sort he, and presumably other teachers, have encountered in classrooms.
