Crooks, T. J. (1988, Winter). The impact of classroom evaluation practices on students. Review of Educational Research, 58(4), 438-481.
This report examines the relationship between classroom evaluation practices and student learning by drawing on results from fourteen fields of research. Divided into four sections, the report first examines the nature, role, and impact of classroom evaluation. The second section, reviews research on the impact of classroom evaluation practices on student learning activities and achievement. The third section reviews research on student motivation and the ways in which it is affected by classroom evaluation practices. The final section focuses on the implications of the preceding sections, specifically with regard to the effective use of classroom evaluation. The author concludes by arguing that classroom evaluation is one of the most significant factors influencing education and therefore, must entail careful planning and be used as a means to assist learning instead of as an end in and of itself.
