A Response to Heshusius'"Curriculum-Based Assessment and Direct Instruction: Critical Reflections on Fundamental Assumptions."
Dixon, Robert C.; Carnine, Douglas W.
Exceptional Children, v58 n5 p461-63 Mar-Apr 1992
This commentary on a paper by L. Heshusius (EC 600 327) argues that, rather than rejecting empiricism, postmechanistic science embraces a more sophisticated view of empiricism and scientific method. The commentary also supports direct instruction with the use of multiple measures of educational progress, quantitative and qualitative alike. (JDD)
