Why Standards May Not Improve Schools.
Eisner, Elliot W.
Educational Leadership, v50 n5 p22-23 Feb 1993
Educators who value student work that displays ingenuity and complexity must look beyond "standards" for evidence of achievement. Work of this kind requires exercise of critical judgment based on certain criteria. Applying criteria is a more complicated and intellectual enterprise than applying a standard. Developmental characteristics of individual students are also important in assessment decisions. (MLH)
