Examiner, Policeman or Students' Companion: Teachers' Perceptions of Their Role in an Assessment Reform.
Yung, Benny H. W.
Educational Review, v53 n3 p251-60 Nov 2001
Interviews with 10 Hong Kong teachers implementing the Teacher Assessment Scheme yielded metaphors describing their perceptions of roles in student assessment: examiner, policeman, and companion. Acting as teacher and assessor brought conflicting value systems into play. Underlying beliefs about assessment should be examined in order for the reform scheme to succeed. (Contains 23 references.)
