FairTest News

Welcome to the first issue of the electronic FairTest Examiner, the newsletter of the National Center for Fair & Open Testing, Inc.


We have published a print edition since the spring of 1987. Now we are shifting to the electronic format in order to publish more frequently, to disseminate issues quickly without a multi-week time lag for production and delivery, and to reduce costs by eliminating printing and mailing.


The electronic Examiner is free. Friends and colleagues who want to sign up to receive it, can do so here.


Producing this newsletter and staffing advocacy programs to make assessments fair, open and educationally sound is not free. To help FairTest support this work, we very much hope you will make a tax-deductible donation right now.


You can also donate by sending a check to FairTest, 15 Court Square, Suite 820, Boston, MA 02108.


We plan to publish the electronic Examiner once every two months, with a rare additional bulletin or action alert to all subscribers. Each issue will be posted to our website, as are the back issues – just click on Examiner Newsletter.


Thank you for your interest and support. If you ever want to stop receiving the Examiner, just follow the instructions at the bottom of the issue.
