Postmodernism in the Field of Achievement Testing.
Lewy, Arieh
Studies in Educational Evaluation, v22 n3 p223-44 1996
Three eras in the history of examining outcomes of education are described, and a new approach labeled as "assessment" is characterized as a postmodern era of achievement testing. This era is marked by increasing the teacher's authority to evaluate achievement and questioning the relevance of certain psychometric principles of evaluation. (SLD)
