Putting First Things First: Changing Our Assessment Practices.
Tinsley, Cynthia
Middle School Journal, v25 n2 p51-54 Nov 1993
Traditional assessment of student progress focuses on product and emphasizes only the academic aspects of student development. Teachers are often frustrated by the teach-test-report model, since grades cannot truly reflect a student's progress. A Canadian secondary school teacher's experience with grade-2 cooperative learning helped restructure her middle-level assessment practices to stress student self-evaluation and goal setting.
