Despite the importance of assessments in education today, few teachers receive much formal training in assessment design or analysis. A recent survey showed that fewer than half the states require competence in assessment for licensure as a teacher (Stiggins, 1999). My hope is that teachers change both their view of assessments and their interpretation of results. Please view the links below to improve the quality of your classroom assessments and align the assessments with the state standards and your measurable objectives.
The benefits of assessment for both students and teachers will be boundless.
