ABSTRACT
To evaluate pupil achievement, external procedures may be used. The external procedures stress those who write test items and pilot study them, prior to use in testing public school pupils. These kinds of tests pertain to standardized and criterion referenced tests, written and developed by those outside the local classroom and unfamiliar with the children being taught. Toward the other end of the continuum, constructivism may be emphasized whereby those internally in the classroom, pupils and teachers, are heavily involved in assessing learner progress. Should the two approaches be harmonized or might the two procedures work side by side to evaluate achievement of pupils?
