Going into its eighth edition, this book is a classic in the field of educational measurement. It was written from the point of view of the classroom teacher to answer the question, "What does a teacher need to know about the development and evaluation of educational measures and assessments?" This book fosters an understanding of how assessment and instruction are interrelated. It also cultivates learning the techniques and skills needed to develop tests and other evaluation procedures (e.g. portfolios), as well as teaches students to understand how to evaluate the validity and reliability of tests. Unlike many books in educational measurement, this book also gives readers what they need to know to properly interpret the results from standardized achievement and scholastic aptitude tests. Topics include: test reliability and validity; meaning and application of the norms; extraneous factors that influence performance of cognitive tests; the development of educational measures; and more. Teachers, principals, and counselors.

Tests in Education: A Book of Critical Reviews is a collection of reviews of tests used in education. Topics covered by the reviews include early development, language, mathematics, composite attainments, general abilities, and personality and counseling. In the introduction, the tests reviewed, their range, and their accessibility and availability are discussed, along with the issues taken into account by the reviewers in the preparation of their reviews. Some of the desiderata for published tests are considered and the principles and issues frequently referred to by the reviewers are highlighted. The next section is devoted to the test reviews, which cover early development, language, mathematics, composite attainments, general abilities, and personality and counseling. The final chapter focuses on a number of other reviews for tests such as the Comprehension Test for College of Education Students, Garnett College Test, Maitland Graves Design Judgement Test, The Meier Art Tests, Modern Language Aptitude Test, Seashore Measure of Musical Talents, and Wing Standardized Tests of Musical Intelligence. This monograph will be of value to a wide range of professionals, including teachers, higher administrative staff and educational advisers, educational psychologists, medical officers, speech therapists, pediatricians, psychiatrists, and social workers.
