Lean, Mean Grading Machines? A Bourdieuian Reading of Novice Instructors in a Portfolio-Based Writing Program.
Coulter, Lauren Sewell
WPA: Writing Program Administration, v23 n3 p33-49 Spr 2000
Presents research that demonstrates how local institutional practices can preclude benefits of portfolio evaluation. Finds that communal portfolio assessment shifts the primary site of authority negotiation for new composition teachers (teaching assistants) from their relationships with students to their relationships with their more experienced peers and with the writing program itself.
