The Perfect Test by Ron Dietel

Is there a perfect test? A test so well developed that it can do all those things that policymakers want it to do: higher test scores, teacher evaluation, and assisting teachers to help students learn in the classroom?

Test developers Grant and Jennifer Wilson think so, and they have developed what they believe are the perfect tests, described in a new novel by UCLA author Ron Dietel. The innovative performance assessments even help the U.S. become number one in the world in math and science. But one day, Jennifer discovers a secret list of student names who are exceptions to the high-stakes consequences of the test. So secret that someone is willing to kill for it.

The Perfect Test has just been published. Further information is available on Dietel’s web site. All royalties are being donated to the non-profit education organizations, Education Writers Association and Learning Matters.
