Wiig, Elisabeth H.
Reading and Writing Quarterly: Overcoming Learning Difficulties, v16 n3 p179-210 Jul-Sep 2000
Focuses on fairness in assessing oral language prerequisites for literacy and providing equity of access to appropriate interventions. Discusses assets and limitations of norm- and criterion-referenced testing, behavioral ratings, portfolio assessments, and self-evaluation. Emphasizes multidimensional, multi-perspective assessments, and selected methods are revisited from a perspective of fairness. (RS)
