Exploring the Theories and Consequences of Self-Assessment through Ethical Inquiry.
Schendel, Ellen; O'Neill, Peggy
Assessing Writing, v6 n2 p199-227 1999
Argues that writing research has not explored the ethical implications of using self-evaluations in classroom and large-scale writing assessment. Explores portfolio cover letters, reflective essays, self-grading, and self-placement as depicted in college composition literature using this postmodern ethical framework. Demonstrates a process of ethical inquiry that dovetails with validity inquiry. (SC)
