Assessment of Student Achievement
Based on the premise that assessment of student achievement plays a vital role in instruction - and that its main goal is to improve learning - this new resource emphasizes all types of achievement assessments, not simply classroom assessments.
While stressing the importance of using both classroom tests and performance assessments for a comprehensive assessment of all intended learning outcomes, author Gronlund explains that each makes a unique and important contribution and each, therefore, complements and supplements the other. In it you see clearly how to prepare and use classroom tests and performance assessments, how to assign grades, and how to interpret standardized test scores to students and parents.
Here you'll find all the basic concepts presented with scrupulous technical accuracy in a simple, direct, understandable manner. Practical examples, checklists, boxed material highlighting significant points, and summaries of main points make the concepts extremely clear.
