High Stakes Performance Assessment

High Stakes Performance Assessment
Perspectives on Kentucky's Educational Reform

March 1994 | 112 pages | Corwin
The implementation of a 'high stakes', performace-based assessment system has resulted in financial rewards being granted to those schools demonstrating improved results, while sanctions have been imposed on schools whose academic performance is poor. Contributors to this book examine the complex issues associated with this system in the state of Kentucky and offer diverse opinion on the topic.
