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.

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.

Now in its second edition, this exceptionally lucid and practical assessment text provides a wealth of powerful concrete examples to help students understand assessment concepts and effectively use assessment to support learning. Rather than treat assessment separately from instruction, this book's unique approach treats assessment as a central factor in the life of a teacher every day, whether it's part of planning instruction, composing small study groups, or communicating test results to pupils, parents, and principals. Extensive practical applications with concrete, real-world examples provide future teachers hands-on experience with the real work of students and teachers. Exceptionally clear step-by-step guidance on how to construct and use assessments, including grading student artifacts and the inclusion of a complete test. (For examples see pages 301 and 216) Teaches readers how to create a range of assessments that effectively assess student progress toward learning goals. Unique coverage of child development issues in assessment-examining ways to use assessment to support student learning across the developmental span from kindergarten through high school. Helps future teachers understand what is and is not effective assessment practice at different grade levels. (For examples see pages 129 and 234) Unique chapter-by-chapter coverage of adapting assessment for students with special needs. Provides a basic understanding of specific challenges in this type of assessment and ideas for effective adaptations. Includes more coverage than any other classroom assessment text on how to adapt assessment to the needs of students with disabilities and students whose first language is not English.

Book Description :

Jim Popham's widely popular Classroom Assessment shows teachers how to use classroom testing skillfully and formatively to dramatically increase their teaching effectiveness and make a difference in how well students learn. As in past editions, the author pays particular attention to the instructional payoffs of well-designed classroom tests and highlights the implications of testing on teaching throughout in special But What Does This Have to Do with Teaching? sections in each chapter. Decision Time vignettes present practical classroom problems and show readers actual decisions being made. Parent Talk features describe situations in which a teacher needs to explain something about assessment to parents and show what the author would say in that situation. And a lighter tone is established with cartoons to which readers can relate. The new Eighth Edition highlights the increasing importance of educational assessment in an era of common core state standards and teacher evaluations based on students' tests scores, incorporates the Standards for Educational and Psychological testing guidelines throughout relevant sections, and includes a new section on instructionally diagnostic tests to help readers evaluate the merits of commercial or locally developed diagnostic assessment. Also available with MyLab Education MyLab(tm) is the teaching and learning platform that empowers you to reach every student. By combining trusted author content with digital tools and a flexible platform, MyLab personalizes the learning experience and improves results for each student.

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

GET BOOK

Book Description :

This book is based on the belief that decision making is perhaps the most critical of all teaching skills and that good assessments lie at the core of good decision making. To become better teachers then, teachers must learn to make informed decisions about both individual students (learning decisions) and about groups of students (teaching decisions). This book gives equal status to both types of decisions and shows how assessment is integral to both. The organization of the book is sequential, mirroring the way in which information should be used to make decisions. It begins with a conceptual framework linking information to decision making, then moves to the design of assessment instruments and the collection of assessment information, then to the interpretation of assessment information and, finally, to reporting the results of both the assessment and the decision-making process. There is an emphasis throughout on linking why teachers assess with what and how they assess. Other key features include: * Practical Framework -- The book's framework corresponds to the framework that teachers use to grade their students: conduct (classroom behavior), effort (student motivation), and achievement (student learning). * Unique Chapters -- There are separate chapters on interpreting assessment information prior to decision making and on reporting assessment information to parents, teachers, and administrators. * Flexibility -- Because of its modest length and price, and its practical focus on the links between assessment and everyday teacher decision making, this text can be used either in full-length assessment courses for teachers or to teach the assessment units in educational psychology or integrated methods courses.

Book Description :

What if multilingual learners had the freedom to interact in more than one language with their peers during classroom assessment? What if multilingual learners and their teachers in dual language settings had opportunities to use assessment data in multiple languages to make decisions? Just imagine the rich linguistic, academic, and cultural reservoirs we could tap as we determine what our multilingual learners know and can do. Thankfully, Margo Gottlieb is here to provide concrete and actionable guidance on how to create assessment systems that enable understanding of the whole student, not just that fraction of the student who is only visible as an English learner. With Classroom Assessment in Multiple Languages as your guide, you’ll: Better understand the rationale for and evidence on the value and advantages of classroom assessment in multiple languages Add to your toolkit of classroom assessment practices in one or multiple languages Be more precise and effective in your assessment of multilingual learners by embedding assessment as, for, and of learning into your instructional repertoire Recognize how social-emotional, content, and language learning are all tied to classroom assessment Guide multilingual learners in having voice and choice in the assessment process Despite the urgent need, assessment for multilingual learners is generally tucked into a remote chapter, if touched upon at all in a book; the number of resources narrows even more when multiple languages are brought into play. Here at last is that single resource on how educators and multilingual learners can mutually value languages and cultures in instruction and assessment throughout the school day and over time. We encourage you to get started right away. "Margo Gottlieb has demonstrated why the field, particularly the field as it involves the teaching of multilingual learners, needs another assessment book, particularly a book like this. . . . Classroom Assessment in Multiple Languages quite likely could serve as a catalyst toward the beginning of an enlightened discourse around assessment that will benefit multilingual learners." ~Kathy Escamilla
