Develop and use well-written tests, master the essentials of educational assessment, and improve instruction and learning
Written with both clarity and wit, Classroom Assessment shows pre- and in-service teachers how to use classroom testing accurately and formatively to dramatically increase your teaching effectiveness and make a difference in how well students learn. In addition to clear and concise guidelines on how to develop and use quality classroom assessments, the author also pays particular attention to the implications of testing on teaching. The 9th Edition includes extensive discussion of the Standards for Educational and Psychological Testing and their impact on classroom assessment, keys for evaluating instructionally diagnostic testing, and updated coverage of relevant legislation and policy changes, including the implications of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) on classroom teachers. In addition to expanded treatment of technology and its implications for classroom assessment, a new Testing Takeaway feature and an updated Parent Talk feature introduce thoughtful ways to promote assessment literacy, educate parents, and open up discussions.

A new Distance-Learning Possibilities section is included in the accompanying Instructor’s Resource Manual. The section details specific chapter-by-chapter strategies, activities, and options that help you optimize distance learning in the face of atypical challenges.
