Description: Setting the standard in professional assessment resources, ASSESSMENT offers basic assessment information along with a handbook-style reference to comprehensive, frank reviews of the tests most administered in K-12 schools. Updated to reflect changes in the field, the new edition takes advantage of the text's robust website, Education CourseMate, to convey information and promote active learning. It also brings to the forefront the "hot topics" of RTI and ELL, while retaining key features that have made the text a classic. The authors focus on standardized tests that are used to assess students in special and inclusive education: the details of the tests, what does and doesn't work with them, and how to interpret the test data--but also how to look at the individual child's needs. Appropriate for novices and experts, this text equips readers with the knowledge and tools to assess their students' skills and abilities effectively and efficiently. Featuring an emphasis on improved outcomes, it shows readers how to broaden their assessment labors from efforts designed to make predictions about students' lives to efforts that can make a difference in the lives of the students they serve.
