Oldham, Daniel H.
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Capella University
Assessing student knowledge is one of the primary functions of accountability under the No Child Left Behind Act. Finding a means of truly assessing student knowledge has become a major focus of most state departments of education. This study compared two different assessment approaches based on the same set of standards as a means of determining if a gap exists between the two assessment scores. Comparing these two forms of assessment provided a better understanding of the effectiveness of standardized tests versus alternative forms of assessment.
