Interrogating the Benchmarks.
Wyatt-Smith, Clair
English in Australia, n123 p20-27 Nov 1998
Discusses the formulation of the Australian Literacy Benchmarks for Year 3 and Year 5. Suggests they (1) lay claim to designating a minimum standard; (2) represent "fuzzy" standards; and (3) are a composite based on a number of underlying criteria. Claims teachers' knowledge of student literacy achievement is a richer source of valid assessment information. (NH)
