Ersatz Learning, Inauthentic Testing.
McClymer, John F.; Knoles, Lucia Z.
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v3 p33-50 1992

Assignments must pose real questions addressed by practitioners in the discipline in question, must make scholarly sense, and must challenge students to perform rather than simply to remember. (JB)
