The nature of teacher's qualitative judgements: A matter of context and salience. Part two: 'Out-of-context' judgements.
MetadataShow full item record
This second paper also takes up the issues of how teachers make judgements of primary students' writing. Once again, the authors examine the evidence base used by two teachers in their judgements, using qualitative techniques for mapping the inter-relationships among the indexes that teachers rely on to formulate judgements. Of special interest in this paper is how the teachers enacted judgements of student writing in the absence of knowledge about the institutional and pedagogical settings in which the writing had been produced, and also without knowledge of the student writer. The authors recommend that readers consider the discussion and findings offered in this paper in conjunction with paper one which proceeds it.
