Classrooms: Assessment Practices for Teachers and Student Improvement Strategies is the first volume of a two volume series. For many years, professionals have argued and debated about the topic of assessment and how students with and without disabilities should be assessed. Different professionals have different beliefs on assessment and the field has changed from a standardized assessment process to more of a curriculum-based assessment process that can include content driven assessments, observations, and direct student involvement in the assessment process. Thoughts and attitudes vary regarding assessment, but one thing that is clear is that assessment should drive instruction. The topic of assessment is also highly discussed, and different professionals with expertise in different areas have different viewpoints. Some say it depends on each individual child, the teacher, and the school environment for which they are to receive their education. This situation has led to many different viewpoints on this very important topic that includes school professionals, parents, researchers, and communities.
This volume addresses the current top perspectives and issues regarding the topic of assessment by providing chapters written by active researchers and scholarly university professors who specialize in this area. This volume focuses on what teachers can do in regards to assessment. Topics include: assessment strategies for teachers to improve, making informed decisions based on assessment, co-teaching, effective learning environments, e-assessment, written reflections, classroom observations, rubrics, behavioral assessment, and English language learners.
This volume is composed of fifteen chapters which are written by well-known and respected university professors who are actively involved in teaching undergraduate/graduate general and special education courses, and who are engaged in research on students with and without disabilities. Classrooms: Assessment Practices for Teachers and Student Improvement Strategies is an excellent resource for general and special education teachers, administrators, and undergraduate and graduate general and special education students who are looking for detailed, comprehensive and current information for their research papers or theses.
