«This book will be invaluable to educators and stakeholders – especially in the current climate of high-stakes testing. It provides critical insights into the world of testing with clarity and a historical perspective and caveats. It will enrich my undergraduates as well as my graduate students in the area of testing.» (Gloria S. Smith, Professor, Michigan State University)
«Testing is the cornerstone of most of the efforts to improve education and leave no child behind. It is essential that educators have a firm grasp on the basics of assessment lest we make serious mistakes in assessing progress. Joan M. Baker’s book provides a valuable resource for educators to turn to when they need to know those basics.» (Roger C. Farr, Professor, Indiana University, Coauthor of ‘The Metropolitan Achievement Test’)
