Toward a Reconsideration of School Assessment.
Monroe, David
NASSP Bulletin, v77 n556 p28-35 Nov 1993
Present schooling culture reflected in narrowly conceived testing, grouping, and grading programs discourages the kind of sustained, collaborative inquiry that should characterize America's schools. Assessment programs must change to promote instruction systems that encourage student initiative and perseverance to pursue unanswered questions. Coverage, closure, and correctness must yield to problem solving, engagement with challenging ideas, and enlarged world understandings. (MLH)
