Literacy Assessment and the Politics of Identities.
Murphy, Sharon
Reading and Writing Quarterly: Overcoming Learning Difficulties, v13 n3 p261-77 Jul-Sep 1997
Presents examples of how standardized testing recognizes, constrains, or dismisses the multifaceted aspects of identities children bring to classrooms and influences the identities of teachers and psychologists whose actions are constrained by a culture that reproduces itself. Challenges readers to take up new models of assessment that not only engage issues of identity but build upon them. (RS)
