Assessment Conversations.
Johnston, Peter
Reading Teacher, v57 n1 p90-92 Sep 2003

Outlines how assessments can improve learning. Concludes that since assessments of children, as enacted in classrooms, are part of the intellectual environment into which they will grow, the features of literate behavior that are focused on have consequences.
