The Uses and Limits of Performance Assessment.
Eisner, Elliot W.
Phi Delta Kappan, v80 n9 p658-60 May 1999
Performance assessment can help educators develop ways to reveal individual students' distinctive features and secure information about learning. These opportunities will be wasted unless the public's attitudes and expectations toward schooling are changed. Attitudes cannot change without revising policies inhibiting school children's educational and social mobility. (MLH)
