Format: Hardcover
I used this book through college and actually, it was more than useful in my first few years teaching. Since most teachers of children with special needs only need the basics of testing and assesment, this gives the most understandable view of how to assess, why to assess and what to do with your assessments. In most schools, the more formal testing is done at other levels, and the teacher simply needs to understand what these tests are saying and where to go from there.

I used this text while in college. It covers a wide range of assessment tools and procedures from standardized tests like the Woodcock Johnson to portfolio assessment. This is a good tool for college students to use to learn about the general aspects of various assessment tools. I would not recommend it to teachers because it is not specific enough. The book is very well organized and easy to read.
