(see http://eff.cls.utk.edu/resources/default.htm for the EFF Special Collection website, and links to the Discussion page and EFF homepage). I find Dr. Stites' metaphors to be very illustrative - and his explanations of them allow us (me, anyway) to fully understand that a fundamental part of assessment is that you can never get it all no matter what kind or how many assessments you may use. The results of any assessment will always only necessarily be one small piece of the larger puzzle (and here is yet another metaphor!). Happy reading! marie
