Summary

The main thesis of this paper is that testing is now ready for a major effort to create a synthesis out of what has hitherto been a series of unrelated approaches to testing. The paper proposes the methods of Measurement, Evaluation and Assessment as three very different approaches to the problem of testing, and discusses their characteristics. It further suggests ways in which some of the powerful aspects of each testing approach may be brought together into a more complex and useful way of handling test problems. Interactions between these approaches and consequences of the proposed synthetic theory are also discussed. (Author)
