Tests and Measurements in the Age of Accountability
Assessment | Education | Summative Assessment & Testing
"For one of the only times in my career, and according to my master's students' positive reactions and statements, Wright's text encourages readers to think closely and with high interest about current assessment in education. The book gives educators strong justification and clarification for what they have been thinking about assessment in their classrooms"
"This is the best book I’ve found for the Test and Measurements course for school counselors."
This book was requested for one course but turned out to be perfect for a more advanced course on individual assessment. This is a great text for any k-16 evaluator.
Very good book, could be supported with better teacher materials.
This textbook corresponded best with the assessment knowledge and skills needed by K-12 teachers in a master's degree program.
I like the focus on the whole school environment and how testing fits in historically. I like the clarity of explanations regarding test analysis and construction. I can build on this by adding specific information about music assessments.
Covered the material at an appropriated level for first year grad students.
