If you want to learn about the latest research on assessment techniques that really work, the ideal sourcebook is right here in your hands. Assessment in Science is a collection of up-to-date reports by authors who are practicing K–16 classroom teachers and university-based educators and researchers. Working in teams, they tried out and evaluated different assessment approaches in actual classrooms.

The research is sound without being hard to grasp because the authors made a special effort to capture practical lessons in accessible language. As the introduction notes, the reports feature “classroom-testing stories, standards-based assessment techniques, teaching-testing dilemmas, portfolio struggles and triumphs, and knowledge of the research on assessment.”

The 18 chapters are structured for ease of comprehension, moving from a detailed description of how the research was carried out, to research findings, to concrete implications for the classroom.

Though enlightening for classroom teachers at all levels, Assessment in Science is also valuable for curriculum supervisors and for professors who teach science education—and for anyone else who needs to know what’s most current in proven assessment techniques.
