Help with graduate classes!

Hey! I'm working on my masters in sped and one of my projects is to interview teachers in my district about the formal achievement tests that we give, basically trying to get a feel for what tests we feel are the most accurate when it comes to representing student performance. I know when I assess it often comes out either inflated or deflated depending on how the scores are averaged. I'm trying to get feedback on the TOWL-3, TORC-3, Keymath, and Woodcock-Johnson (reading, writing and math). Any opinions on how you feel the test are as far as accuracy, working better with older vs. younger kids, any bias, ease of administrating/scoring, kids reaction to test etc. etc. Any help is completely appreciated!!!!

The new updated Woodcock-Johnson is said to give scores that are inflated. We are not allowed to use it in our district.

We give KeyMath in my district (Philadelphia, PA). I determined
that it was accurate at the middle-school level as far back as 2001-2002, but not sure about these days. (I have been in Low Incidence subsequent to '02 and L.I. population doesn't take KeyMath so I've not worked w/ the
changed measurements.)
