Description:

Written specifically for school administrators and those preparing to be school administrators, this easy-to-read book contains only what's needed by leaders in today's assessment-dominated world of educational accountability. The content of the text is unabashedly practical, addressed specifically to the assessment-related needs of today's school administrators. The real-world orientation of the book, based on the author's extensive and continuing work in the nation's public schools, makes the book attractive to those instructors who teach assessment courses taken by prospective school administrators. Students (and in-service school administrators) will recognize immediately that this text is not loaded with dry, abstruse content about measurement and psychometric exotica. Readers will sense immediately that this book deals with the real-world measurement issues that today's educational leaders will most certainly encounter.
