Overview

Norman E. Gronlund - C. Keith Waugh

Assessment of Student Achievement, 9/e

Now in a fresh ninth edition, this respected resource gives teachers the information they need to develop high-quality assessments to use in their classrooms. Norman E. Gronlund and new co-author C. Keith Waugh present a balanced, concise, and practical guide for testing and performance assessment that is rooted in effective classroom instruction and learning. Their approach emphasizes testing as well as performance evaluation–each used when it is most appropriate–as integral steps that improve student learning and ultimately build student success. With more examples, new recommended reading, and an expanded discussion of how assessment informs instruction, this book offers the strongest strategies to assess and then build the skills of all learners.

“The three distinguishing strengths of this book are the content, the organization, and the summaries at the ends of chapters.” –Dr. Cheryl Cummins, Delta State University

“The text provides a firm foundation in assessment principles and also provides teachers with the tools that will support the development of high-quality assessments.” –Stacey Neuharth-Pritchett, University of Georgia

    Index doesn't match

    The biggest disappointment was that the index did not match the page numbers. They must have forgotten to change the index from the previous edition. Not good when you have an open book exam!
