Leon, Staci; Elias, Maurice
Research in Middle Level Education Quarterly, v21 n2 p21-37 Win 1998
Compared portfolio, performance, and traditional assessments of sixth graders. Found that authentic measures and self-evaluations were weakly correlated with or independent of performance grades and standardized test scores. Academic motivation was more predictive of traditional than authentic measures. Forty percent of students performed better on authentic than on traditional assessments. Twenty percent performed better on traditional than on authentic assessments. (Author)
