Review "This text shows teachers how to use measurement and statistics wisely in their classes. Although there is some discussion of theory, emphasis is given to the practical, everyday uses of measurement and statistics such as how to develop and use effective classroom tests, how to carry out informal assessments, performance assessments, portfolio assessments, and how to use and interpret standardized tests. Part II provides a more complete coverage of basic descriptive statistics and their use in the classroom than any text now available."--Jacket
