Main description

Classroom Assessment for Teachers provides students with essential professional knowledge/skill sets along with contemporary issues surrounding the assessment of student learning progress and achievement. By utilizing an inquiry-oriented approach, pre-service teacher candidates can explore the essential relationship between assessment and teaching with a deliberate focus on encouraging students to construct their own assessment framework and select measures and procedures that are designed to meet their own needs along with those of their students. Individual chapters are devoted to critical assessment topics, including instruction-learning-assessment alignment, formative assessment, self-assessment, formative assessment, grading, Response to Intervention (RTI), performance assessment, affective assessment, as well as high-stakes testing, validity and reliability, and the use of applied statistics in the classroom.
