Reconsidering Assessment: From Checklist to Dialectic.
Halden-Sullivan, Judith
Assessing Writing, v3 n2 p173-95 1996
Describes consequences of an inadvertent misalignment in grading practice by analyzing an instructor's essay evaluation checklist. Finds that, in trying to promote evaluative consistency, the checklist privileges product over process, academic discourse over students' own voices, and an analytic predisposition to student writing over an instructor's reader-response. Proposes a dual heuristic that directly address the checklist's inherent conflicts. (RS)
