Whittaker, Andrea; Young, Viki M.
Teacher Education Quarterly, v29 n3 p43-60 Sum 2002
Examines what teachers learn about the role of assessments in instruction through designing and using their own curriculum- embedded assessment, noting how the development of teachers' understanding of assessment for instructional purposes supports and conflicts with use of assessment data for reporting and accountability purposes. The paper describes the process of developing curriculum embedded assessment with teachers in an accountability focused, externally-funded science program. (SM)
