Features and benefits:
Covers a range of assessment concepts, including - Formative (uses feedback from learning to adapt teaching) -Summative (i.e. tests, quizzes) -Authentic (focuses on complex/deeper tasks) -Standardized
Includes coverage of assessment for English language learners and children with special needs -- topics that are not provided enough coverage in other books
(including Wortham, McAfee, Puckett and Mindes).
Wright's writing style grabs and engages the reader in the topic. Two of our reviewers who use Wortham specifically cited Wright's writing style as a reason they would adopt our book. A McAfee reviewer is likely to switch for the same reason.
