This highly respected text offers the most comprehensive discussion of traditional and alternative assessments of any classroom assessment text—explaining, giving examples, discussing pros and cons, and showing how to construct virtually all of the traditional and alternative assessments teachers use in the classroom. The author explores assessment theories and research findings as they affect teaching and learning, and examines why, when, and how teachers should use assessment in the classroom. To the text's hundreds of practical examples are added checklists to aid in evaluating assessment vehicles and scores of strategies for assessing higher-order thinking, critical-thinking, and problem-solving skills.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From reviews of the book:

“I find the style of this text very engaging and accessible for students. The checklists in the item creation chapters and the examples throughout are very strong and [are] concrete ways to solidify sometimes abstract or new concepts for students. . . . The key strengths to this text are the number and quality of examples and visual aids (charts, tables) that clarify concepts for beginning assessment students. Another strength is the applied approach to writing assessment items.”

--Heidi Legg Burross, University of Arizona

“In my opinion, this is the most comprehensive and user-friendly textbook on classroom assessment currently in publication. It is appropriate for both undergraduate and graduate courses, it supports the course objectives well, and the students like it and praise it. . . . An overall benefit of this text is that it parallels the content we have selected for this course so well that we can eliminate some of the lecture material that we traditionally used and focus more on the practical application of the principles.”

--Kathryn Anderson Alvestad, University of Maryland, College Park

“This textbook has been thorough in each of its editions, reflecting the contemporary issues, practices and thought related to educational assessment with no glaring omissions. The authors have done a fine job in covering the relevant topics both in the necessary depth and scope appropriate for an introductory educational assessment course. . . . The writing, illustrations, and graphics are clear and engaging, making the textbook a favorite among our graduate students.”

--Charles Thomas, George Mason
