"This handbook addresses and sorts out many of the complex issues related to teacher assessment and teacher quality, and the connections between the two. This is no small task, given the numerous ways and time points at which teacher quality is assessed, the multitude of stakeholders with a vested interest in assessment processes and assessment products, the competing policy and political agendas to which various assessments of teachers and teaching are attached, and ongoing controversies about what teacher quality means and why it is important. One of the strengths of this handbook is that it does not shy away from or attempt to reduce the messiness of these issues by offering a simplified notion of assessment and quality. —From the Foreword by Marilyn Cochran-Smith Praise for Teacher Assessment and the Quest for Teacher Quality "With its stellar lineup of authors, this book tackles with impressive insight the most fundamental and urgent problem facing educators today. Because teaching is the common pathway through which all educational improvements reach the students, nothing is more important than learning to assess its quality." —James Hiebert, Robert J. Barkley Professor of Education, University of Delaware "Improvement of human capital is an urgent priority for education reform. Kennedy and her colleagues make an important contribution by presenting a variety of productive uses of assessment to improve teacher qualities and thereby teacher quality." —Jody Spiro, Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, New York University "I am deeply encouraged by Teacher Assessment and the Quest for Teacher Quality as it gives a fresh voice to the critical conversation of the role of assessments in measuring teacher quality. This handbook, expertly edited by Mary Kennedy, offers a considered analysis with a keen focus on student learning." —Joyce C. Loveless, NBCT, executive director, Program Access and Equity, National Board for Professional Teaching Standards "Every teacher, administrator, and school board member will benefit greatly from reading this thought-provoking book to truly understand and appreciate the intriguing, multi-dimensional relationship between teacher assessment and teacher quality." —Jack Umstatter, best-selling author, Brain Games!

Thomas Kellaghan Educational Research Centre, St. Patrick's College, Dublin, Ireland Daniel L. Stufflebeam The Evaluation Center, Western Michigan University, Ml, USA Lori A. Wingate The Evaluation Center, Western Michigan University, Ml, USA Educational evaluation encompasses a wide array of activities, including student assessment, measurement, testing, program evaluation, school personnel evalua tion, school accreditation, and curriculum evaluation. It occurs at all levels of education systems, from the individual student evaluations carried out by class room teachers, to evaluations of schools and districts, to district-wide program evaluations, to national assessments, to cross-national comparisons of student achievement. As in any area of scholarship and practice, the field is constantly evolving, as a result of advances in theory, methodology, and technology; increasing globalization; emerging needs and pressures; and cross-fertilization from other disciplines. The beginning of a new century would seem an appropriate time to provide a portrait of the current state of the theory and practice of educational evaluation across the globe. It is the purpose of this handbook to attempt to do this, to sketch the international landscape of educational evaluation - its conceptual izations, practice, methodology, and background, and the functions it serves. The book's 43 chapters, grouped in 10 sections, provide detailed accounts of major components of the educational evaluation enterprise. Together, they provide a panoramic view of an evolving field.

This book's multi-disciplinary perspective identifies the potential advantages and pitfalls of these new assessment forms, as well as the critical research questions that must be addressed if these assessment methods are to benefit education.
