Alternative assessment Assumes knowledge has multiple meanings Treats learning as an active process Emphasizes process and product Focuses on inquiry Assumes the purpose of assessment is to facilitate learning Views assessment as subjective and value-laden Embraces a shared model of power and control Perceives learning as a collaborative process .
