A Handbook of Classroom Assessment

Based on over 100 interviews with preschool and K-12 teachers, A Handbook of Classroom Assessment is a brief and practical guide that helps future teachers understand the basic issues of assessment and shows them how to use assessment as an integral part of the teaching process. Balanced in its approach, it blends traditional testing theory and practices with the ideas and practices of the authentic assessment movement, recognizing that all forms of assessment have both limitations and important uses.
