Overview

A multiple award-winning text, this is the market-leader for assessment courses. Keenly focused on instructing new teachers how to assess students in classrooms, the text shows how to use assessment to accurately reflect student achievement and how to benefit–not merely grade–student learning. With an exceptionally strong focus on integrating assessment with instruction through student involvement in the assessment process, it is clearly the most non-technical, hands-on and practical orientation to assessment validity and reliability yet developed
