The Utility and Need for Incorporating Noncognitive Skills Into Large-Scale Educational Assessments (2012)

Non-cognitive outcome measurement is more challenging to assess than cognitive because of its highly diverse dimensions and difficulties in sampling performance on these dimensions. This chapter addresses the highly incomplete knowledge base on the potential importance of non-cognitive aspects of students and schools, issues of measurement and assessment, and their predictive value on adult outcomes.
