Performance Assessments for Beginning Teachers: Options and Lessons.
Long, Claudia; Stansbury, Kendyll
Phi Delta Kappan, v76 n4 p318-22 Dec 1994
A 3-year pilot study of alternative assessments for over 500 beginning teachers revealed numerous possibilities, including high-inference classroom observations, semistructured interviews, structured simulation tasks, performance-based assessment center exercises, portfolios, videotaped teaching episodes, and revamped multiple-choice examinations. No one test is best; effective assessments are adequately scored, avoid bias, require assessor training, and provide teacher support. (MLH)
