Assessing Alternative Assessment.
Maeroff, Gene I.
Phi Delta Kappan, v73 n4 p272-81 Dec 1991
For all its attractiveness, alternative assessment is fraught with complications and difficulties, as Rhode Island's experience shows. Although alternative assessment can be systematic, there are no ways to rate large numbers of performance-based tasks, portfolios, interviews, exhibits, or essays. Some standardization is necessary, and assessment must be aligned with instruction. (11 references) (MLH)
