This text focuses on the use of assessment data in the ongoing school program, with special focus on the classroom. Use of assessment data ranges from the obvious classroom applications aimed at improving teaching and learning to accountability and program evaluation. Although the text focuses primarily on the development of classroom assessments, appropriate space is given to the consideration of high-stakes and standardized testing that has become such a part of today's educational reform. The book begins with an overview of the concept of assessment. This is followed by chapters on planning assessments, constructing both traditional modern assessments (including performance, observational, and portfolio assessments), and concludes with chapters on summarizing data and working with the standardized measures of grading and reporting.
