Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

The market-leader! This popular text introduces future classroom teachers to those elements of measurement and assessment that are essential to good teaching. Its straightforward treatment is predicated on the authors' belief that evaluation of learning plays a pivotal role in the instructional process...and that its effectiveness depends on a teacher's ability to construct and select evaluation instruments that provide a valid measure of intended learning outcomes. Written with the introductory student in mind, it assumes no prior knowledge of statistics, and uses illustrative examples generously to explain and expand upon topics. Statistical concepts are introduced only as necessary for understanding, with the authors consistently emphasizing interpretation over computation. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is the worst textbook I have ever bought for any class! It is a huge waste of money and super frustrating to read. This book is horribly written. The explanations are boring, drawn out, and unclear. The early chapters draaaag on forever. The later chapters get a little better, but they state a lot of obvious or useless information. I have spent hours and weeks studying from this text and learned very little.

Used for my Measurement & Evaluation class for my MSEd. program, I've already convinced the professor to find a new book for his next group of students. The book has inadequate explanations - all too open ended for my taste, dry writing, and hard to decipher language. It says so much, while saying nothing at all! As if the field of assessment and testing wasn't dry enough, along comes Linn, ready to make it even worse. There has got to be a better book! Needless to say, I relied on the i-net for supplementary information to our class lectures. I did not crack this book once beyond the intro chapter!

This book was used for an assessment class I took at TN Techological University. I'm sure the authors did not mean to, but the book is very dry and hard to read at times. However it gets easier the farther along you get. The sections with sample test questions were useful. Everyone in my class complained about this book. Our instructor used notes and powerpoints from other texts to supplement. I definately do not recommend this title.

This text is very hard to read and interpret. However, it was exactly what I had to have for my class.
