Lightfoot, Dory; Gustafson, Ruth
Multicultural Education, v7 n4 p25-32 Sum 2000

Analyzes traditional writing in social science as a type of literature, demonstrating how imaginative writing about students casts doubt on the validity of psychometrics and diagnostics in school reports, records, and discussions as complete portraits of students' abilities.
