Summary

This book provides prospective and current teachers with a concise, non-technical and practical guide to conducting a full range of high-quality classroom assessments. The text emphasizes assessment in the context of the realities of teaching and teacher decision-making, as well as on how assessment is integrated with instruction. Assessment methods are integrated with instruction and presented according to when teachers evaluate students (before, during, and after an instructional unit) and the learning targets that are measured. There is considerable emphasis on the nature of learning targets and how different assessments are most appropriate for different targets. For each assessment technique, suggestions for effective practice are presented with examples and case studies. There are separate chapters on contemporary assessment techniques and issues, such as performance and portfolio assessments, as well as separate chapters on assessing affective targets and students with disabilities included in the regular classroom. A balance is provided with traditional forms of assessment and the need for teachers to administer, interpret, and use results from standards-based large scale assessments and other standardized tests.
