The Curriculum and Evaluation Standards for School Mathematics (NCTM 1989) and the Professional Standards for Teaching Mathematics (NCTM 1991) advocate an array of alternative-assessment strategies that encourage modification of teachers' practices in measuring students' performance. Unfortunately, many teachers must operate within the constraints of the system under which they serve. Teachers feel bound to traditional testing by virtue of the adopted percent procedure established by their schools and simply because grading has been done in the traditional manner for years.
