This title is only available as a loose-leaf version with Pearson eText. Written for a first course in classroom assessment and educational testing, this text is particularly suited for courses that seek to teach students (1) how to use and construct formative and summative assessments for classroom teaching and (2) the basics of educational measurement. The book provides complete coverage of educational assessment, including developing plans that integrate teaching and assessment; using formative assessment strategies and providing effective feedback to students; crafting objective, performance, and portfolio assessments; evaluating students and discussing evaluations with parents; and interpreting state-mandated tests and standardized achievement tests. From reviews of the book: I find the style of this text very engaging and accessible for students. The checklists in the item creation chapters and the examples throughout are very strong and [are] concrete ways to solidify sometimes abstract or new concepts for students. . . . The key strengths to this text are the number and quality of examples and visual aids (charts, tables) that clarify concepts for beginning assessment students. Another strength is the applied approach to writing assessment items. --Heidi Legg Burross, University of Arizona In my opinion, this is the most comprehensive and user-friendly textbook on classroom assessment currently in publication. It is appropriate for both undergraduate and graduate courses, it supports the course objectives well, and the students like it and praise it. . . . An overall benefit of this text is that it parallels the content we have selected for this course so well that we can eliminate some of the lecture material that we traditionally used and focus more on the practical application of the principles. --Kathryn Anderson Alvestad, University of Maryland, College Park This textbook has been thorough in each of its editions, reflecting the contemporary issues, practices and thought related to educational assessment with no glaring omissions. The authors have done a fine job in covering the relevant topics both in the necessary depth and scope appropriate for an introductory educational assessment course. . . . The writing, illustrations, and graphics are clear and engaging, making the textbook a favorite among our graduate students. --Charles Thomas, George Mason 0133830268 / 9780133830262 Educational Assessment of Students, Loose-Leaf Version with Pearson eText -- Access Card Package Package consists of: 0133436497 / 9780133436495 Educational Assessment of Students, Loose-Leaf Version 013377984X / 9780133779844 Educational Assessment of Students, Pearson eText -- Access Card

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 brings together psychometric, cognitive science, policy, and content domain perspectives on new approaches to educational assessment -- in particular, constructed response, performance testing, and portfolio assessment. These new assessment approaches -- a full range of alternatives to traditional multiple-choice tests -- are useful in all types of large-scale testing programs, including educational admissions, school accountability, and placement. 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.

Programming and Assessment for Quality Teaching and Learning is written for teachers and trainers in all instructional settings in Australia. It is particularly useful for teacher-education students who are taking a first course in assessment, and also provides a sound foundation for post-graduate students. The model of pedagogical practice referred to as Quality Teaching is used as a framework for this book. This approach to teaching was developed from the Productive Pedagogy model, which in turn has its roots in the Authentic Pedagogy movement. This book demonstrates how research-based principles of effective teaching (of which the Quality Teaching model is just one example) can be used as a strong foundation for developing learning programs and assessment practices that emphasise quality teaching and learning. This is not a recipe book for writing particular types of questions, but rather emphasises the importance of teachers understanding the principles of learning and assessment. Teachers will discover how to use assessment to guide student learning rather than simply measure what has been learned. It challenges teachers to question traditional assessment practices and to develop new approaches that provide reliable evidence from which valid inferences can be drawn about the quality of studentsa learning.
