Fragile Changes, Sturdy Lives: Implementing Authentic Assessment in Schools.
Prestine, Nona A.; McGreal, Thomas L.
Educational Administration Quarterly, v33 n3 p371-400 Aug 1997
Examines data from four secondary schools struggling to develop and implement authentic learning and assessment over a three-year period. The schools did not succeed due to several interrelated factors: lack of foundational knowledge, the dominance of privacy and classroom autonomy norms, teacher time and student control issues, efficacy issues, and a fragmented support system.
