Details

Large-scale assessment and standardized testing have the power to either open or close future doors for your students. Based on the latest research, this book by Robert J. Marzano, Christopher W. Dodson, Julia A. Simms, and Jacob P. Wipf clearly articulates the ethical challenges teachers face in preparing students for these tests and what can be done to ensure effective test preparation. You'll review a first-of-its-kind study of over 8,000 assessment items and receive specific recommendations for ELA, mathematics, and science.

  • Understand the role and profound impact large-scale assessment and high-stakes testing have in students' lives.

  • Study an analysis of 8,804 items from state, national, and international standardized tests.
