Practical, user-friendly, and clearly understandable, this widely popular text gives students and future teachers what they need to understand assessment in the schools, and to use it effectively in practice. A real-world story of the entire process of assessment that has a beginning, a middle, and an end, Pierangelo and Giuliani’s text not only covers validity and reliability, tests most often used in assessment, legal issues, and basic statistical terminology, but also focuses on the practical application of assessment in schools with discussions on interpreting results, diagnosing a suspected disability, writing a professional report, making recommendations from the data, presenting results to parents, and attending eligibility committee meetings. The comprehensive coverage of assessment spans infancy and preschool age through high school and into adulthood and includes combined coverage of formal and informal assessment. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded videos.
