On the Criticisms of Performance Assessment.
Strange, William B.
Contemporary Education, v69 n1 p30-33 Fall 1997
Critiques William Mehrens' 1992 article on performance assessment, claiming that Mehrens professes to favor performance assessment but only as an afterthought to traditional assessment, and Mehrens' view of traditional assessment limits his portrayal of performance assessment. The paper encourages the research community to support performance assessment and recommends ongoing discussion of appropriate student evaluation. (SM)
