Replying to LO17392 --

I believe we agree that all practices carry with them unexpected agendas and
"unintended consequences."

Are there some "unintended consequences" we might expect to come along with
"upward assessment."

Might third grade teachers and college professors change their standards if
their jobs and salary was tied to student ranking?

Might supervisors in positions that often demanded of them difficult
personnel decisions change those decisions if they knew they were to be
"upwardly assessed."

How do we determine if upward assessment will bring with deficits and
difficulties that outweigh the benefits?
