Most [educators] are convinced we need to do a better job of assessing students, either with new tests or new applications of tests. All argue that at this very critical time it is imperative that educators be very knowledgeable about assessment and the ways assessment information is used to make decisions about students. [The book] is intended for a first course in assessment for those whose careers require understanding and informed use of assessment data. The primary audience comprises those who are or will be teachers in special education at the elementary or secondary level.... In writing for those who are taking their first course in assessment, we have assumed no prior knowledge of measurement and statistical concepts. -Pref.
