Towards a More Rational System of the Assessment of English
Page, James S. (1986) Towards a More Rational System of the Assessment of English. Words' Worth, 19(2), pp. 3-5.
This article examines internal assessment within secondary schooling in Queensland (Australia) and three problems associated with the assessment of English: a) practicality, given the need to assess the whole of a student's work, b) comparability, given that judgments on student work are often very subjective, and c) originaility, given that it is difficult if not impossible to ensure that the work has actually been completed by the student. It is suggested that a return to some form external examination might be necessary.
