Item description for Measuring Up: Standards, Assessment, and School Reform (Jossey Bass Education Series) by Robert Rothman...

Overview
Rothman offers a highly accessible examination of the shift in thinking about testing. Illustrative case studies of assessment programs provide a window into the classrooms, showing how change has come about and what the new methods actually look like in practice.

Publishers Description
"The question that dismays all teachers and ought to concern every parent because of what it reveals about what school can do to a child's curiosity -- ?Will this be on the test?' -- will never be answered again in the same way. Bob Rothman offers a rich and compelling account of the unfolding revolution in testing in America's schools."
-- Richard P. Mills, Vermont commissioner of education
An award-winning journalist, Rothman cuts through the assessment debate -- a debate often characterized by misrepresentations and jargon -- to offer a highly accessible examination of the shift in thinking about testing. He underscores that any change must begin with the And: what we want students to know and be able to do. Such changes demand a new way of knowing what students can achieve--and a system that enables them to achieve.

Very comprehensive book  Jun 2, 2000
I was sure what to expect from this book mainly because the author is not a professor at a highly prestigious university . But Rothman has written a trully great book . It offers all info regarding the school reform and which are the educational opportunities of the future . I recommend it to anyone that has an interest in school reform , standards and alternative assessment .
