Furthering the Goal of Cross-Disciplinary Dialogue
Moss, Pamela A.; Pullin, Diana; Gee, James Paul; Haertel, Edward H.
Measurement: Interdisciplinary Research and Perspectives, v3 n2 p114-115 Jan 2005
This article presents a rejoinder on the commentaries of the authors' article titled, "The Idea of Testing: Psychometric and Sociocultural Perspectives." In different ways, each commentary has made a productive contribution to a multidisciplinary dialogue about educational assessment. The authors acknowledge that dialogue across disciplinary boundaries is hard. They state that talking meaningfully across disciplinary boundaries entails, to at least some extent, learning a new language and participating in a new culture. The authors contend that commentators have helped to further this goal in a number of different ways.
