Jim Popham’s widely popular Classroom Assessment shows teachers how to use classroom testing skillfully and formatively to dramatically increase their teaching effectiveness and make a difference in how well students learn. As in past editions, the author pays particular attention to the instructional payoffs of well-designed classroom tests and highlights the implications of testing on teaching throughout in special But What Does This Have to Do with Teaching? sections in each chapter. Decision Time vignettes present practical classroom problems and show readers actual decisions being made. Parent Talk features describe situations in which a teacher needs to explain something about assessment to parents and show what the author would say in that situation. And a lighter tone is established with cartoons to which readers can relate. The new Eighth Edition highlights the increasing importance of educational assessment in an era of common core state standards and teacher evaluations based on students’ tests scores, incorporates the Standards for Educational and Psychological testing guidelines throughout relevant sections, and includes a new section on instructionally diagnostic tests to help readers evaluate the merits of commercial or locally developed diagnostic assessment.

Editorial Reviews

From reviews of the text:       “Popham’s writing is clear, engaging, humorous, and yet sophisticated.  It speaks to readers in professional and uplifting ways, supportive of both teachers and the field itself . . . .  Despite the ease with which one can read the text, it is full of essential information for pre-service teachers.  And true to his philosophy throughout the book, less is more; there is no filler here.  It gives teachers just what they need to know about assessment, which translates into a book that will be read and read again and then hopefully become part of the future teacher’s philosophy of assessment.”   —Marilyn Roseman, Mount Aloysius College     “Popham’s text is engaging and exceptionally well-written.  As a companion to an introductory course in educational assessment, I have not been able to find a text that better addresses the instructional needs of educators who are entering the field. Popham covers core measurement concepts in a highly accessible manner.  He makes an effort to disarm students who have anxiety about the mathematical formulas that are often emphasized in other measurement texts . . . .  .  Each semester I have several students who express their appreciation for the down-to-earth and humorous coverage of this sometimes intimidating content.”   —Deborah Bennett, Purdue University     “It is an easy read with clear definitions and concepts. The illustrations and examples are exemplary in giving students a thorough understanding of what they have read . . . .  [The validity] chapter has given me a “new” perspective on teaching validity . . . .  I found the item-writing guidelines . . . to be exemplary . . . .  It is relevant and up-to-date with the Common Core Standards, PARCC assessments, and Smarter Balance. This new material is more up-to-date than my present textbook . . . .  I am so impressed . . . that I plan to change my textbook.”   —Jean Ragin, Coppin State University
