Bringing the Brain into Assessment.
Caine, Geoffrey; Caine, Renate Nummela
High School Magazine, v6 n5 p8-12 Mar 1999
Brain research explains why testing for surface knowledge (memorization) reveals relatively little about real, usable knowledge. Assessment must contribute to real-world experience, relate to real-world performance, can never be fully translated into representative symbols or numbers, and can induce both helplessness (interference with meaningful learning) and challenge.
