Summary "The second edition of this exceptionally lucid and practical assessment text provides a wealth of powerful concrete examples that help students to understand assessment concepts and to effectively use assessment to support learning. The book offers unique coverage of ways to use assessment to support student learning across the developmental span from Kindergarten through high school. Rather than treat assessment separately from instruction, this bookѫs unique approach treats assessment as a central factor in the life of a teacher every day, whether itѫs part of planning instruction, composing small study groups, or communicating test results to pupils, parents and principals. The book also provides more coverage than any other classroom assessment text of how to adapt assessment to the needs of students with disabilities and students whose first language is not English."--Publisher's website.
