Setting Standards for Students: The Case for Authentic Assessment.
Darling-Hammond, Linda
NASSP Bulletin, v77 n556 p18-26 Nov 1993
Students at 1 East Harlem high school bypass Regents exams and Carnegie units, working intensively to prepare portfolios revealing their competence in 14 curricular areas. European assessment strategies differ from traditional U.S. tests by being truly representative of performance in the field, employing well-articulated performance standards, stressing self-assessment, and expecting students to present and defend their work publicly.
