measurement vs feedback

A post resurrecting a good article is up at the Daily Riff about measurement versus feedback.

Standardized tests as well as grades are measurements and real feedback would assume that the learners were partners in the endeavor.  Our students and families are not partners within the hierarchical and authoritarian relationship defined by our compulsory attendance factory school model.

And that's a structural problem that none of the current school so-called reforms will address or solve.
