Anchoring Assessment with Exemplars: Why Students and Teachers Need Models.
Wiggins, Grant
Gifted Child Quarterly, v40 n2 p66-69 Spr 1996

Four types of performance criteria are proposed: impact, process, form, and content. Examples of assessment initiatives grounded in models of excellent performance are summarized. (Author/DB)
