TR 69. Implications of Cognitive Psychology for Authentic Assessment and Instruction

By Robert C. Calfee

Summary: Calfee offers a brief sketch of developments in the psychology of learning and thinking over the past half century, provides a few thoughts about the forks in the road that now confront U.S. educators (continuing a tradition of "managed" schooling versus a radical transformation in the teaching profession), focuses on testing and assessment (probably the point of greatest tension at present), and describes an assessment model that relies on teacher judgments for both internal and external accountability. May, 1994; 22 pages.
