Teachers' Thinking and Rethinking Assessment Practices.
Cooney, Thomas J.; Shealy, Barry E.
Five secondary school teachers participated in a 3-year project to support the rethinking of their assessment practices. The teachers met regularly to share ideas, submitted assessment tasks and their assessments of students, and received feedback. All of the teachers professed significant changes in their understanding of assessment and four changed their teaching significantly. The teachers' written contributions to the project, interviews with the teachers and their students, and observations of the teachers' teaching were analyzed. Key factors from the nature of the teachers' beliefs and their social situations were identified that facilitated and/or inhibited change. (Author)
