Noncognitive Skill Assessment in School : Research, Practice, Application
Noncognitive skills have long been understood to matter in school, workforce, and life-though means to measures these skills have not been formalized by test makers and measurement experts. In this groundbreaking book, Richard Roberts and Jonathan Martin draw together the latest research on the assessment, support, and development of noncognitive skills in schools. With case studies that clearly demonstrate the value of noncognitive skills, and the many complications involved in assessing them productively, this book traces out this new and complex assessment terrain and explains how we might use the new assessment tools we have.
