The ABCs of Educational Testing

Demystifying the Tools That Shape Our Schools

W. James Popham,

The ABCs of Educational Testing: Demystifying the Tools That Shape Our Schools
 
 

Amplify your assessment literacy.

Formative, data-driven, high-stakes—we all know the buzzwords surrounding educational testing. But we often shelve our understanding of these because they are overwhelmingly complex. Those who care about our schools and students—teachers, administrators, policymakers, parents, citizens—will discover how and why testing should be taken upon ourselves to advance. Using a nontechnical approach, this book offers fundamental knowledge to free you from testing fogginess—all framed around practical actions you can take to strengthen your assessment literacy. Inappropriate tests are leading to mistaken decisions, and this book provides everything you need to know to change that, including

  • Reasons for tests
  • Reliability/validity
  • Fairness
  • Test-building
