For tests and measurements courses and courses in assessment for elementary and middle school.

Brief and practical, this popular text focuses on what classroom assessment is and how to do it, and bridges the gap between testing a learner's knowledge of particular "information" and measuring his or her ability to transfer knowledge and think strategically. Coverage encompasses all of the issues surrounding the use of classroom assessments (validity, reliability, bias, impact) through targeted discussions that address everything prospective teachers need to know, completely yet succinctly. The authors offer a comprehensive menu of techniques for assessing not only what learners know, but also how they think, how they perform, and how they apply what they know within authentic, real-world contexts.
