This article describes " some directions in which the future of testing may be headed." Included in the list (paraphrased): classroom-based assessment of authentic classroom work ("The anti-standardized testing group, FairTest, has developed a model to help guide state system innovations"); technology-enhanced items pushing testing toward greater real-world fidelity; continuous assessment by immersing students in complex problem-solving activities; inclusion and flexibility in test content and the interpretation and use of standards. As I've said before, I think that eventually we'll move beyond testing and simply base assessment on what students do in the world.
