School administrators and teachers are being challenged on many fronts to demonstrate accountability through assessment, from early childhood through secondary education. Despite an explosion of demand, the underlying principles of sound assessment such as the valid use of examination results, their reliability, their efficiency in terms of teachers' and students' time, and their ethical use are often neglected. Addressed to in-service and pre-service teachers and administrators, this book reorders educational priorities, emphasizing the relation of what is taught to what is tested, educationally sound and effective preparation for assessments, exploring alternatives to paper and pencil tests, the appropriate interpretation and use of test results, communicating the meaning of assessment results to parents and communities, and using program evaluation to improve learning. This book attempts to overcome the negative feelings that some educators have about classroom and standardized testing. By providing practical knowledge and real-life examples of how assessment and evaluation should shape student learning, the book enables readers to understand how assessment can be a powerful positive force for good in schools.

Christopher Deneen is an associate professor and director of assessment for the Graduate School of Psychology and Education at Touro College, New York City. He has been a teacher and administrator in K-12 schools. James Deneen is a consultant to schools and other educational institutions.

Review:

This is an important book for school professionals. Chris Deneen brings his current experience in preparing and monitoring urban teachers, while Jim Deneen draws on his years of experience at ETS, where he focused on issues in assessing Hispanic students. Assessing Student Achievement is filled with information and techniques that teachers and administrators can immediately put into practice. (Gary Keller, professor and director, Hispanic Research Center, Arizona State University)
