Wheeler, Patricia; Haertel, Geneva D.
This handbook addresses the complex and expanding vocabulary of performance assessment and measurement by providing a glossary of related terms and lists of resources for the student, practitioner, and policymaker. Performance assessment includes all forms of such assessment from multiple choice and paper-and-pencil tests to alternative assessments. Glossary terms were selected by rating the frequency of use and importance in explaining key concepts. Sources of additional information include professional associations and agencies, major test publishers, books and other documents on measurement and assessment, and information on professional and technical standards for developing and using assessment instruments and programs.
