Farewell, Curriculum: Confessions of an Assessment Convert.
Popham, W. James
Phi Delta Kappan, v79 n5 p380-84 Jan 1998
The author began his education career committed to curriculum, not measurement. After years of using teacher-made and standardized tests as instructional afterthoughts, he recognized the superiority of criterion-referenced testing and the influence of high-stakes testing on instruction. He then became involved with developing such tests on a statewide level, realizing that carefully crafted, instructionally illuminated tests can substantially benefit classroom performance. (MLH)
