Overview

This book is not for the "tired and timid" but for those committed professionals who wish to think through a plan that is coherent, cohesive, learner- and family-focused, and work through the development of a defensible (reliable and valid) authentic assessment system. Discusses emerging research in the area of brain development research and its implication for assessment practices. Provides information on the "standards movement" and how these standards can have either a negative or positive impact on developmental goals. Adds a developmental continuum as an appendix to help teachers focus on emerging development rather than on perceived deficits in children. Provides an added chapter on portfolio systems. Places more emphasis on the discussions of diversity and inclusion. For educators and school administrators.
