Beyond the Bubble Test: Why We Need Performance Assessments

Beyond the Bubble Test: Why We Need Performance Assessments | Feedback! (Formative Assessment Process or Standards-based Grading) | Scoop.it
Last spring, while millions of American students were bubbling in answers to multiple-choice questions on the ubiquitous tests that determine school and teacher ratings, student promotions, graduation, and college admissions, some students were meeting a higher standard.
