 Abstract
In 2005, descriptive assessment was introduced to increase students’ higher mental ability like problem-solving ability and creativity. Every year the ratio of descriptive assessment increases and it is regarded as an alternative evaluation to a multiple-choice item which measures simplicity knowledge. Externally the descriptive assessment took a root in school, but we can’t say definitely that it meets its original goal. In this paper, science descriptive assessment items of 5 middle schools in Gyeonggi-do were analysed; examiners was interviewed about how well they understood the characteristic of the assessment items. According to the analysis, characteristic of the items are ① unequal distribution of unit, ② difference of item’s type by unit, and ③ disappearance of measuring higher mental ability. It is considered that there are several factors of these characteristic - the lack of teachers’ ability to make assessment item; understanding of assessment instrument. These factors can be explained by the lack of assessment expertise. So the society’s effort is needed to raise teacher’s ability for the descriptive assessment.
