Summary

• Provides detailed information on

· the functions of assessment;

· how to construct, administer, and interpret the results of teacher-developed assessment techniques; and

· how to interpret the results of externally developed instruments such as standardized tests.

• Both traditional and newer, alternative assessment techniques are covered.

• Advantages and disadvantages of each assessment technique are discussed.

• A companion website helps both instructors and students obtain additional information on topics of special interest to them.

• Numerous examples of the principles and procedures make it easy for students to understand the material.

• The highly practical nature of this book stems from the focus on how assessment intertwines with other everyday activities in classrooms.

• Measurement theory and computational procedures that are unlikely to be used by classroom teachers are de-emphasized, producing a textbook that provides comprehensive coverage without being unnecessarily technical.
