''While providing a slightly more technical presentation of measurement and assessment than more basic texts, this text is both approachable and comprehensive. The text includes an introduction to the basic mathematics of measurement, and expands traditional coverage to include a discussion of performance and portfolio assessments, a presentation of assessment accommodations for students with disabilities, and a practical discussion of professional best practices in educational measurement.''--BOOK JACKET.
