The Achilles' Heel of Quality: The Assessment of Student Learning.
Knight, Peter T.
Quality in Higher Education, v8 n1 p107-15 Apr 2002
Explores the dependability of assessments of student achievement when used for internal and external quality monitoring (IQM and EQM). Identifies problems and suggests responses, including a radical approach based on accepting that reliable national data about complex student achievements are not available. Asserts that reliance on EQM is unwise and that more attention should be paid to IQM. (EV)
