Chudowsky, Naomi; Pellegrino, James W.
Theory into Practice, v42 n1 p75-83 Win 2003
Describes the construct problem within achievement testing, asserting that current research in the cognitive sciences, measurement, and technology make this an opportune time to move forward in assessing critical aspects of learning. Designing new kinds of situations for capturing the complexity of learning requires breaking out of the current "drop-in-from-the-sky" standardized testing mode and promoting sustained, collaborative efforts among specialties in academic content, learning, and assessment.
