Written with energy and wit, this reader-friendly text discusses practical ways in which teachers can use well-written tests to improve their effectiveness in the classroom.

 

Exploring a wide range of classroom assessments as well as how these assessments can benefit student learning, the thoroughly revised sixth edition of Classroom Assessment retains its humorous tone and unique practice exercises while adding new research, new material, and new features. This edition covers both contemporary classroom assessment issues, including No Child Left Behind, instructor accountability, and formative assessments, while also covering traditional assessment topics such as assessment validity and assessment reliability.

 

Three new chapters include fresh and expanded material on formative assessments, the evaluation of instruction, and properly grading assessments. In addition, a new section at the end of the book provides students with critical thinking exercises that involve real-world assessment issues and that cover central topics from each chapter. Another new feature teaches readers how to best communicate with parents about assessments and assessment results.

Sixth Edition

Classroom Assessment: What Teachers Need to Know

W. James Popham

 

Long the market-leading text, Classroom Assessment, 6th Edition, continues to offer the same traits that have been its hallmark for decades:

  • a practical approach rich with real classroom strategies and
  • applications
  • an authoritative, research-based overview of classroom assessment by one of the leaders in the field, W. James Popham
  • an authorial voice that is truly both clear and engaging that pre-service teachers will enjoy.

In addition to covering expertly the field of classroom assessment, this text continues to give students ample opportunities, in the “Decision Time” activities, to evaluate realistic classroom scenarios and to make informed decisions about testing and assessment based on what they've learned in each chapter.  It also retains the highly regarded feature, “Parent Talk," so new teachers can learn effective ways to communicate with parents about their children's grades and educational progress. Further, this edition contains important new information and coverage:

  • Chapter 12 introduces a new formative assessment procedure that can improve classroom teachers' instructional effectiveness.
  • Chapters 15 and 16 now divide the subject of grading to cover separately and in detail ways in which teachers can evaluate their own teaching and its impact on student progress and grades and how to grade students fairly and usefully.
  • "Extended Applications" appear at the end of the book and provide rich cases where students can apply what they've learned to authentic educational situations.

 

We feel this well-known bestseller is better, more up to date, and more useful to teachers than ever.
