Assessment "for" Learning in Upper Elementary Grades
Stiggins, Rick
Phi Delta Kappan, v90 n6 p419-421 Feb 2009
As students enter the upper elementary grades, the emotional dynamics of their assessment experiences begin to affect them in both helpful and harmful ways. Those who experience success on assessments gain a strong sense of academic self-efficacy. Those who experience failure lose their sense of control over their own academic well-being. The author explains how to make the assessment experience productive for learners regardless of the level of proficiency attained.
