Samuelowicz, Katherine; Bain, John D.
Higher Education, v43 n2 p173-201 Mar 2002
Interviewed Australian professors about the assessments they employ in undergraduate classes. Found that their global orientations to assessment practice (described as a matrix of six orientations made up of six beliefs) could be ordered along a continuum from emphasis on knowledge reproduction to emphasis on knowledge construction/transformation. These orientations were related to teaching- versus learning-centered classroom orientations. (EV)
