Soodak, Leslie C.
Reading and Writing Quarterly: Overcoming Learning Difficulties, v16 n3 p257-80 Jul-Sep 2000
Argues that the goal of enhancing fairness and equity in the evaluation of students with learning difficulties will not be realized by merely introducing performance assessments. Suggests need for development of an empirical base to guide implementation and to reevaluate prevailing beliefs about student failure and the role of assessment in determining eligibility for services.
