Differentiation as an Interactional Consequence of Routine Classroom Testing.
Poole, Deborah
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education, v7 n1 p1-17 Jan-Mar 1994
Examines the function of schooling as constituted in the interactional sequences of routine testing events. Demonstrates that classroom testing represents a critical activity through which the grouping of students is accomplished. Suggests that the differentiation of both homogeneous and heterogeneous school populations is a necessary by-product of current testing practices. Notes the need for alternative models of assessment.
