Assessing for Learning: Some Dimensions Underlying New Approaches to Educational Assessment.
Biggs, John
Alberta Journal of Educational Research, v41 n1 p1-17 Mar 1995
Different models of performance assessment arise from interactions of three dimensions of assessment: the measurement versus the standards model of testing, quantitative and qualitative assumptions concerning the nature of learning, and whether learning and testing are situated or decontextualized. Addresses difficulties in implementing qualitative and situated modes of assessment, which are effective but underrepresented in current assessment practice. (Author/LP)
