Confusion Effusion: A Rejoinder to Wiggins.
Cizek, Gregory J.

This rejoinder to Grant Wiggins on performance assessment suggests that true educational reform will undoubtedly be evidenced by something more substantial than pocket folders bulging with student work. Labeling performance tests "authentic" does not ensure their validity, reliability, or incorruptibility. Such tests are neither replacements nor cure-alls for other assessment shortcomings.
