A multiple award-winning text for educational assessment courses.

This market-leading text focuses squarely on instructing both pre- and in-service teachers how to assess students in classrooms, employing an exceptionally strong focus on integrating assessment with instruction through student involvement in the assessment process.

The revised edition offers five easy-to-understand keys to effective classroom assessment practice that any teacher can learn to apply, proving to be the most non-technical and hands-on practical orientation to assessment validity and reliability yet developed.  The presentation covers the full-range of classroom assessment methods, when and how to use them, and how to communicate results in ways that support learning.  Examples and models are offered across grade levels and schools subjects to assist candidates in learning these things.
