Using Standards and Assessments To Support Student Learning.
Darling-Hammond, Linda; Falk, Beverly
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n3 p190-99 Nov 1997
Content and performance standards can underlie high-quality assessments that provide useful information about how students and schools are doing. These data should be used to inform teaching decisions, trigger special supports for students' learning, and evaluate school practices, rather than simply allocating mechanistically determined rewards and sanctions or requiring automatic grade retention--practices with undesirable effects.
