Summary: The market-leading professional resource in the field, this text offers basic assessment information and a handbook of actual reviews of the tests most often administered in K-12 schools.

Comprehensive coverage includes both standardized (formal) and classroom (informal) assessment, such as portfolio assessment, outcome-based assessment, observation, ecological assessment, and teacher-made tests. New! Chapter 15, "How to Review a Test," takes readers through these steps: picking a test; understanding a test's purposes, content, procedures, and scores; evaluating a test's norms, reliability, and validity; and reaching a summary evaluation of a test.
