Editorial Reviews

Review

Zwick does a superb job of demonstrating that these tests are part of larger social and educational problems that cannot be solved simply by eliminating their use. I know of no other book that tackles this issue in such user-friendly language..
–Patricia Gándara, author of Over the Ivy Walls: The Educational Mobility of Low-Income Chicanos

Fair Game? is even-handed and fun to read. Rebecca Zwick demolishes long-standing testing myths on both sides of the political spectrum..
–Paul W. Holland, Director, ETS Center for Statistical Theory and Practice

This book is essential for policymakers and educators seeking a balanced grasp of admissions testing. Rebecca Zwick's clear and thorough contribution offers new research-based directions for policy..
–Michael Kirst, Stanford University

Many testing policy debates are replete with charges and counter charges about testing that are partial and misleading. Fair Game is comprehensive, and ends with new research-based directions for policy..
–Michael Kirst, Professor of Education, Stanford University School of Education
