Assessment Literacy for the 21st Century.
Stiggins, Richard J.
Phi Delta Kappan, v77 n3 p238-45 Nov 1995
Assessment literates know how to meet specific standards of quality. Sound assessments arise from and serve clear purposes, reflect clear and appropriate achievement targets, rely on proper methods, sample student achievement appropriately, and control for sources of bias and distortion. Barriers include fear of assessment, insufficient time, and public perceptions. (MLH)
