9780138783563: Measurement and Assessment in Teaching

For a basic Test and Measurement course.

The market leader, this popular text introduces future teachers to those elements of measurement and assessment 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 valid evaluation instruments. 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.
