Realism and Fairness in Growth Expectations.
Divgi, D. R.
Educational Measurement: Issues and Practice, v8 n2 p26,30 Sum 1989
The question of realistic expectations for achievement growth for learning disabled students is discussed. The controversy among previous authors is caused by the acceptance of unsupported claims about interval scales, and not by the explicit definition of realism and fairness, which can fix a growth expectation.
