Assessing Academic Achievement


Assessing Academic Achievement approaches student assessment as an integral component of a total educational plan.

The author draws on years of first-hand experience in both public school and university settings, suggesting that frequently educators disconnect assessment from the other elements of their educational plan. This book balances traditional methods of assessment with an investigation and evaluation of alternative, â authentic assessmentâ approaches. The result is an eclectic approach that exposes students to a full range of assessment principles.
