An Assessment Typology
Haile, Penelope J.
Social Policy, 8, 2, 20-26, Sep-Oct 77
The purpose for which a test is needed is the most important criterion for deciding which type of student assessment tool should be used. Standardized tests were developed as sorting instruments based upon certain views of knowledge and learning. Educators, according to their own values, must either bring standardized tests more into line with these views, or strive to develop, refine and implement other modes of assessment. (Author/GC)
