Mastering Assessment by W.James Popham
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The term 'assessment literacy' is increasingly being used in education as teachers are required to know more and more about assessment and accountability. Most of today's public educators, however, were never required as part of their pre-service training to learn the ins and outs of this complicated subject matter. Most traditional textbooks were written for graduate students aspiring to be specialist in measurement and assessment. "Mastering Assessment "is a packaged set of booklets about a wide range of topics related to educational assessment. Written by noted author, W. James Popham in his characteristic witty style, these short books put the most relevant information on assessment at teachers' fingertips. Reading through a booklet on reducing assessment bias, how to build constructed response tests, or scoring rubrics will provide teachers a quick, engaging means of becoming 'assessment literate'.
