Publisher Comments:

“…a practical overview of the principles, techniques, and issues related to assessment …[that] gives novice and experienced teachers what they need, but that also respects the fact that teaching is a profession with specialized knowledge and skills.”

Educational assessment as it is really practiced today

Thomas P. Hogan’s Educational Assessment: A Practical Introduction brings you to the frontlines in educational assessment, as it is actually practiced in today’s classrooms, school systems, state departments, and national organizations.

Drawing on his rich and extensive career in the field, as well as best-practice standards set forth by the NEA, AFT, NCME, and INTASC, Hogan combines a clear organization with outstanding pedagogical techniques and numerous examples to show how to conduct first-rate classroom assessments and gain a solid working-knowledge of standardized assessment.   

Thomas P. Hogan teaches in the Education and Psychology Departments of the University of Scranton.  He has written over 100 articles, presentations, papers, and chapters on educational measurement and assessment issues, and also coauthored several widely used standardized and criterion-referenced assessment instruments.  Dr. Hogan frequently serves as a consultant to school, state, and national organizations on assessment issues.
