Conducting Assessments is a small, practical book that outlines the factors leading to reliable, valid and trustworthy assessments and evaluations. In addition to organizing and clarifying the basics about this field, Conducting Assessments covers assessment principles and methods, as well as the tools and processes employed by some of the most advanced practitioners. The goal of Conducting Assessments is to assist assessment sponsors and practitioners as they strive for valid, trustworthy assessments and offer provocative reading for students learning about assessments.
