Editorial Reviews

Cindy Pulkowski
“This book is a wonderful tool and reference for any teacher. In my work of providing professional development to teachers of elementary science, one of the hardest areas for the teachers to grasp is assessment. Especially helpful for these teachers are the chapters on writing short-answer and essay items, performance-based assessment, and portfolios.”
