"It is difficult to imagine that a reflective teacher who is interested in improving one's practice would not find something of value in these pages...The success of this project will depend on the extent to which the intended audience is willing to dig into the references, reflect on the lessons within the book, and also reflect on teaching practice as they experiment with ways to improve it. If these books, and others like them, have their intended impact, science education will have a bright future."
-THE AMERICAN BIOLOGY TEACHER
"...a source of excellent information on new and potentially very powerful, research-based assessment strategies for probing student understanding of science."
-PUBLIC UNDERSTANDING OF SCIENCE
"If one is interested in "constructivist" assessment in science, this book is a good resource..."
