Being There: (Re)Making the Assessment Scene
Gallagher, Chris W.
College Composition and Communication, v62 n3 p450-476 Feb 2011
I use Burkean analysis to show how neoliberalism undermines faculty assessment expertise and underwrites testing industry expertise in the current assessment scene. Contending that we cannot extricate ourselves from our limited agency in this scene until we abandon the familiar "stakeholder" theory of power, I propose a rewriting of the assessment scene that asserts faculty and student agency and leadership for writing assessment. (Contains 20 notes and 2 figures.)
