  7. Beyond Testing: Seven Assessments of Students and Schools More Effective Than Standardized Tests

    The authors of this timely book argue that a fundamentally complex problem - how to assess the knowledge of a child - cannot be reduced to a simple test score. Beyond Testing describes seven forms of assessment that are more effective than standardised test results: student self-assessments; direct teacher observations of students and their work; descriptive reviews of the child; reading and maths interviews with children; portfolios and public defence of student work; school reviews and observations by outside professionals; school boards and town meetings. These assessments are more honest about what we can and cannot know about children's knowledge, skills and dispositions, and are more adaptable to varying educational missions.
