Patterns Of Interaction In The Lexical Development In Two Languages Of Bilingual Infants, Barbara Zurer Pearson, Sylvia C. Fernandez

Ranking, Evaluating, Liking: Sorting Out Three Forms Of Judgment., Peter Elbow Jan 1994

Evaluation: a multidimensional judgment--using words or providing a multidimensional grid. Judging allows for more trustworthy assessment of writing and many other products.

Liking. This section explores the benefits that come when teachers actually learn to *like* student work--and indeed to like students--and how one can learn to like work even if one judges it to be not very good.
