For courses in Classroom Assessment, Test and Measurement, and training of teachers. This core text for courses in classroom assessment is the leading text for courses where the focus is squarely on teaching teachers and preservice teachers how to assess students in their day-to-day classrooms. It takes a stronger focus than any other book on integrating assessment and instruction. And it provides very clear guidance on how to construct all types of items and tests, but also explains better than any other text what each type of item can and cannot assess.
