Plain Talk about Alternative Assessment.
Cheek, Dennis W.
Middle School Journal, v25 n2 p6-10 Nov 1993
Testing is a technology, a socially mediated, value-laden endeavor. Technologies embody trade-offs between what is desired and real-world constraints of cost, time, thought, and energy. Although alternative assessments offer exciting prospects for middle schools, these new forms must not be misused or naively accepted as defensible, consummate evidence of student achievement. Using a wide range of techniques is essential. (MLH)
