Classroom Assessment and Educational Measurementexplores the ways in which the theory and practice of both educational measurement and the assessment of student learning in classroom settings mutually inform one another. Chapters by assessment and measurement experts consider the nature of classroom assessment information, from student achievement to affective and socio-emotional attributes; how teachers interpret and work with assessment results; and emerging issues in assessment such as digital technologies and diversity/inclusion. This book uniquely considers the limitations of applying large-scale educational measurement theory to classroom assessment and the adaptations necessary to make this transfer useful. Researchers, graduate students, industry professionals, and policymakers will come away with an essential understanding of how the classroom assessment context is essential to broadening contemporary educational measurement perspectives. >

This text employs a somewhat "traditional" approach to the study of educational tests and measurement so that teachers will understand essential psychometric concepts and be able to apply them in the classroom. The principles that guide the development of this text are (1) What essential knowledge and skills do classroom teachers need to conduct student assessments in a professional manner, and (2) What does the research on educational assessment tell us? This focus has resulted in a uniquely approachable, but technically accurate presentation of the material. While providing a slightly more technical presentation of the material than more basic texts, this text is both approachable and comprehensive. The text includes a gentle introduction to the basic mathematics of measurement, and expands traditional coverage to include a thorough discussion of performance and portfolio assessments, a complete presentation of assessment accommodations for students with disabilities, and a practical discussion of professional best practices in educational measurement.

The Sage Handbook of Research on Classroom Assessment provides scholars, professors, graduate students, and other researchers and policy makers in the organizations, agencies, testing companies, and school districts with a comprehensive source of research on all aspects of K-12 classroom assessment. The handbook emphasizes theory, conceptual frameworks, and all varieties of research (quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods) to provide an in-depth understanding of the knowledge base in each area of classroom assessment and how to conduct inquiry in the area. It presents classroom assessment research to convey, in depth, the state of knowledge and understanding that is represented by the research, with particular emphasis on how classroom assessment practices affect student achieventment and teacher behavior. Editor James H. McMillan and five Associate Editors bring the best thinking and analysis from leading classroom assessment researchers on the nature of the research, making significant contributions to this prominent and hotly debated topic in education.

"" I have an extremely high opinion of this textbook. This is the only assessment text I have ever used that students actually read consistently. Students frequently comment about their enjoyment of the text and their appreciation for the humor injected throughout the chapters." " Marcy Blackburn, Cameron University "" The topics are presented very clearly, are very well organized, and are sufficiently comprehensive for pre-service teachers." " Brian C. McKevitt, Iowa State University Written in Jim Popham's characteristic witty style, the Fourth Edition of "Classroom Assessment" addresses the range of assessments that teachers are likely to use in their classrooms. The forces of accountability have changed educational assessment and this new edition now addresses the central issue of how classroom assessment can effectively benefit students when carried out in the context of accountability tests. New legislation such as the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) and issues such as state standards that directly impact classroom testing and teaching, are discussed to present readers with a series of practical action options. In addition, the text continues to analyze more traditional topics such as validity and reliability and discusses the alternative assessments used in today's classrooms.

Systematic Classroom Assessment promotes a fresh vision of assessment for student learning and achievement. Using a framework that positions assessment as both an iterative, purposeful cycle of inquiry for teachers as well as a coherent system of activities through which students engage in their own learning, this framework for classroom assessment is unique in incorporating self-regulated learning, motivation, and non-cognitive processes. Key components such as assessment for learning, feedback, emerging technologies, and specific content areas are treated in depth, and fundamental principles like reliability, validity, and fairness are approached from the classroom perspective.
