Exploring the Impact of a High-Stakes Direct Writing Assessment in Two High School Classrooms.
Ketter, Jean; Pool, Jonelle
Research in the Teaching of English, v35 n3 p344-93 Feb 2001
Explores the effects of a high-stakes, direct writing test on three teachers and their students. Suggests that an emphasis on test preparation diminished the likelihood of the teachers' engaging in reflective practice that is sensitive to the needs of individual students, and that the high-stakes assessment process discounted the validity of locally developed standards for assessing writing.
