Abstract: From the perspective of the child educator, measuring the classroom performance of 'normally¬∑ achieving' students is relatively straight forward. Such students are fairly consistent in their classroom performance. Thus any estimate of classroom achievement is a reasonable approximation of what has been learnt to date. Furthermore, when faced with some form of classroom assessment, usually a written examination or 'test', the majority of normally-achieving students do not get upset or refuse to co-operate. Because they do not tend to have a lengthy history of negative experience with assessment, they do not have the need to overcome any resentment for tests. In addition, normally-achieving students typically do not have difficulty in reading or listening to instructions.
