Synopsis

Interpreting the Results of Large-Scale Assessments, Mastering Assessment A Self-Service System for Educators. Pamphlet 9 by W. James Popham

Students' scores on various standardized tests are among the more confusing reports on the educational landscape today. In this booklet, Interpreting the Results of Large-Scale Assessments, teachers learn in simple language how score-reporting works and which techniques yield the most defensible results. The MASTERING ASSESSMENT series is a set of fifteen practical, easy-to-use booklets covering a wide range of topics related to educational assessment and accountability. These groundbreaking booklets put the most relevant information on assessment at teachers' fingertips and provide an important resource for educators looking to learn the ins and outs of becoming assessment literate. Paired with the series' Facilitator's Guide (available for download at no additional charge from Pearson's Instructor Resource Center), Mastering Assessment is the perfect tool for building assessment literacy either in self-study or a professional development program.
