This is a good book about assessment. It is teacher friendly! I have read so many book about assessments and the language is usually too academic. This book is written for teachers. It include lots and lots of examples, figures and tables, and blank forms that can be copied. I am glad I bought this book and would recommend teachers to buy it.
