Bracey, Gerald W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v68 n9 p683-86 May 1987
Contends that measurement-driven instruction (MDI) has numerous interrelated and pernicious effects on curriculum, instruction, and learning. Shows that MDI fragments, narrows, deflects, and trivializes the learning experience and furthers the teacher-dominated classroom. Successful response to a set of questions does not equal understanding. Includes 14 references. (MLH)
