Ipsative assessment

“Ipsative assessment refers to the ways in which teachers notice the progress
of an individual student rather than comparing his or her achievement to that
of others.  The point of comparison is the individual’s previous performance.

About backyardbooks

This blog is a kind of electronic storage locker for ideas and quotes that inform my research... literary research into fiction for young adults (with a special focus on New Zealand fiction). Kiwis are producing amazing literature for younger readers, but it isn't getting the academic appreciation it deserves. I hope readers of this blog can make use of the material I gather and share by way of promoting our fiction. Cheers!
