My students are required to do critical- evalua lions of all tests, and to'asses, the selling methods insofar as in formation thereon can be obtain ed. "The lime has come whei school ' administrators, guidanc personnel, and teachers need in formation about tests for thei own protection as well as ,-for their sludenls."
