Puckett, Margaret B.; Black, Janet K.
The first edition of this book was written to encourage practitioners to adopt more "authentic" assessment practices.

The chapters are: (1) "Authentic Assessment: An Emerging Paradigm"; (2) "Implementing Authentic Assessment with Young Children"; (3) "The Basic in Authentic Assessment: Understanding Child Development and Learning"; (4) "Knowledge of Cultures and Developmental Diversity"; (5) "Knowledge of Subject Matter Content in the Curriculum"; (6) "Planning for Authentic Assessment"; (7) "Portfolio Development and Assessment"; (8) "Collaborating with Young Children To Promote Their Self-Assessment and Learning"; (9) "Collaborating with Families To Promote Authentic Assessment"; and (10) "Advocating for Quality Authentic Assessment Practices." Two appendixes contain a checklist for diversity in early childhood education and care and a discussion of developmentally appropriate practices for young children.
