This article engages critically in a study of two areas of academic discourse, educational assessment and the psychology of motivation, in order to examine the dialectical relationships between their modes of classification, ordering and defining, and the construction of personal realities. Its approach draws on post-structuralist thinking associated with critical discourse analysis and Foucault's genealogical method. The first section raises questions about the use of metaphor and its function; the second provides 'readings' of three research texts on children's attributions for their different ideological assumptions; the third brings together issues about the 'subject' and 'emancipation'. The text raises questions about educational assessment's positioning within a paradigm associated with the social construction of knowledge.
