Measure for Measure. Classroom Practices in Teaching English, 1972-1973.
Berger, Allen; Smith, Blanche Hope
The 1972-1973 issue of "Classroom Practices in Teaching English" focuses on the topic of the evaluation of student performance. The 42 articles and statements describe ways to measure reading, writing, and speaking. The writers are teachers in elementary and secondary schools, colleges and universities. About half of them are identified with English teaching and the remainder more generally with education. The writers focus on large and small groups and individuals; they discuss the average, gifted, and slow students. Some also discuss the evaluation of teachers. The writers also try to clarify tests, measurement, evaluation, grading and reporting, and research and development. Some articles are concerned with performance contracting and educational accountability. An appendix of NCTE position statements relating to evaluation is also included. (Author/DI)
