Assessment with an "End in View"
Whittaker, Andrea; Nelson, Carolyn
New Educator, v9 n1 p77-93 2013
This article uses Dewey's (1938) concept of "end in view" to frame one California State University's purposeful action in implementing the Performance Assessment for California Teachers (PACT). The authors provide a chronology of events that reveal the ways in which teacher education faculty were engaged in examining PACT outcomes and candidate performance through informal, "mock scoring" events, and the design of formative, embedded signature assessments, and the resulting changes in the program assessment system, curriculum, and instructional practices. The article closes with concerns and suggestions for sustaining the "end in view" during high-stakes and low-budget circumstances. (Contains 1 figure and 6 footnotes.)
