Multiple Intelligence Approaches to Assessment: Solving the Assessment Conundrum. Revised Edition.
New findings about intelligence as a set of capabilities that expand and change throughout life are changing the view of learning and necessity of assessment. This book presents a new view of assessment that is aligned with the emerging paradigm of multiple intelligences. A multiple intelligence approach to assessment should grow from multiple intelligence approaches to curriculum, instruction, and learning processes. The chapters are: (1) "An Emerging New Paradigm of Assessment"; (2) "Eight Ways of Knowing: A Developmental Perspective"; (3) "Intelligence and Ability Testing Revisited: Creating Student Intelligence Profiles"; (4) "Prescriptions for Expanding and Enhancing Intelligence: Using Intelligence Profiles To Help Students"; (5) "Assessing Student Academic Progress: Toward Creating Authentic Tests"; (6) "Multiperceptual Formal Testing: Assessing Student Academic Progress"; and (7) "Classroom-Based Informal Assessment: Practices for Ongoing Evaluation of Students." An epilogue discusses "Redefining the Boundaries of Education." An appendix contains some intelligent report card models. (Contains 1 labeled figure, 15 assessment forms, numerous illustrations, and 89 references.) (SLD)
