Assessment in the Classroom
Wadsworth Pub., 1999 - Education - 421 pages
This is a practically-oriented text that utilizes current issues as a way to engage students and illustrate the relevance and importance of assessment. This text focuses on a teacherAEs needs and on assessment solely in the classroom environment. Since many assessment texts today are written by experts in statistics and cover the topic of assessment in many settings with complicated terminology, the practical approach of ASSESSMENT IN THE CLASSROOM appeals to instructors who find it difficult to get their students interested in the subjects of testing and measurement. The authors detail traditional testing methods as well as newer forms of alternative assessment, which evaluates students on their abilities to use their knowledge in realistic situations. Areas covered include: the history of measurement in education, basic concepts, how to assess, what to assess, assessment procedures, and external testing programs, as well as how to set up and measure the latest portfolio assessment method. Many sample forms and examples of various types of assessment provided."
