The market-leader! This popular text introduces future classroom teachers to those elements of measurement and assessment that are essential to good teaching. Its straightforward treatment is predicated on the authors' belief that evaluation of learning plays a pivotal role in the instructional process...and that its effectiveness depends on a teacher's ability to construct and select evaluation instruments that provide a valid measure of intended learning outcomes. Written with the introductory student in mind, it assumes no prior knowledge of statistics, and uses illustrative examples generously to explain and expand upon topics. Statistical concepts are introduced only as necessary for understanding, with the authors consistently emphasizing interpretation over computation.
