Performance Assessment Tests: A Problematic Panacea.
Givens, Kate
Contemporary Education, v69 n1 p27-29 Fall 1997
Performance assessment tests have been problematic, and states that have experimented with them have had poor results. The tests have been implemented prematurely and before being adequately researched, which has resulted in problems related to test validity and scoring, student bluffing on answers, high failure rates, accuracy, and student preparation for testing.
