Stanford Professor Linda Darling-Hammond's winter, 2008 presentation on international practices of performance-based assessment, and how these practices compare with American assessments. Rife with implications for NCLB reform (or better still, abolition).

From the Forum for Education and Democracy's blurb:

What we have thought of as fairly rare in this country [i.e., the USA] is quite common in most of the high-achieving countries internationally, Linda Darling-Hammond began. (See her presentation here.) Beginning with a list of 21st century skills, Darling-Hammond contrasted US tests - which require recall of a simple fact or ask students for a one-sentence explanation - with exams abroad that include designing science experiments, refining computer programs and explaining the reasoning behind solutions for complex problems. [In many nations,] theres a teaching and learning system, that operates to provide rich curriculum and strong outcomes, Darling-Hammond said. They are what assure that the higher-order skills are actually taught and practiced.
