Code of fair testing

Code of Fair Testing Practices in Education was initially developed by the Joint Committee on Testing Practices in 1988 as a statement of the primary obligations that professionals who develop or use educational tests have toward test takers. The Code has been revised to be consistent with the 1999 Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing. The Code provides guidance to professionals who develop or use educational tests.
