Assessment for Measurement or Standards: The Peril and Promise of Large-Scale Assessment Reform.
Taylor, Catherine
American Educational Research Journal, v31 n2 p231-62 Sum 1994
Reviews two models for assessment, the measurement model and the standards model, their underlying assumptions about learners, and the resulting implications for performance-based test development. Discusses the current testing debate, defines terms such as "authentic assessment" and "performance-based assessment," and discusses attempts to use testing to set standards for education.
