Facing the Challenges of a New Era of Educational Assessment.
Stiggins, Richard J.
Applied Measurement in Education, v4 n4 p263-73 1991
The old era of educational assessment and reasons for its demise are described. The new era will be different and will present four challenges to the assessment community: (1) new assessment targets; (2) technical challenges of alternative assessments; (3) demystifying assessment and evaluation; and (4) reexamining assessment priorities.
