“Andrew Ho is the Charles William Eliot Professor of Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. A psychometrician, Ho serves on the National Assessment Governing Board, which determines policy for the National Assessment of Educational Progress. His expertise in constructing and explaining high-quality assessments has led him to serve as an advisor to state education commissioners in states like Texas, Massachusetts, and New York. Ho also has taught creative writing in his native Hawaii and AP physics in California. The testing expert spoke with us about the standards that guide the construction of standardized tests.
