Assessment, Disability and the Problem of Compensation.
Sharp, Keith; Earle, Sarah
Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education, v25 n2 p191-99 Jun 2000
Discussion of the practice in the United Kingdom of permitting disabled students to take an alternative form of assessment focuses on implications vis-a-vis assessment principles. It concludes that alternative assessments are compensatory in nature, violate the principles of assessment, and undermine the validity of assessment in higher education. (DB)
