“Both assessment and instruction ought to reflect significant, agreed on goals for students. Assessments should measure important, classroom objectives; assessment results should represent how students perform on broad knowledge and skills domain reflected by those objectives; and classroom instruction should provide students with the opportunity to learn and attain the knowledge and skills.”
J. Herman, 1992
“Many people continually pursue excellence but are at the same time opposed to or are in fear of evaluation and assessment. However only through clarifying purpose, measuring and judging the impact of action can excellence be determined.”
G. Glass, 1975
