Also of widespread interest as the conference was developed was the restructuring of secondary school examinations. The papers are: (1) "Pressures, Priority and Progress: An International Perspective on School Assessment: Back to Basics" (Patrick Griffin); (2) "Commentary on Patrick Griffin's Paper" (Cedric Croft); (3) "A Primary Perspective" (Frances Nelson); (4) "Assessment Priorities for the Secondary Sector" (Graeme Macann); (5) "Assessment--Maori Attitudes to Assessment" (Wharehuia Hemara); (6) "Ministry of Education's Policy Interests in Assessment" (Frances Kelly); ( 7) "Achievement 2001" (Michael Irwin); and (8) "Conclusion" (Richard Watkins). Most of the papers contain references. (SLD)
