Well stated by Dr. Joel Schneider
"The principles of assessment are like a set of unruly and loosely affiliated wandering tribes. There is no established hierarchy of rules, no “Prince of Principles,” and no royal family. There is no Senate, no Supreme Court, no United Nations. Yet, some members are esteemed by all. Others play partisan politics. Some are pompous windbags, others meek speakers of truth. Some are brilliant but impractical, others practical but limited. Some go unnoticed because they are subtle, others because they are so obvious. Some are widely misunderstood and some have outlived their usefulness. Some appear to be senselessly confining but actually protect us from our own excesses and foibles"
