Tarasawa, B., Gotwals, A., & Jackson, C. (2020). Assessment education: Bridging research, theory, and practice to promote equity and student learning. Rowman & Littlefield.
This book focuses on practical uses of assessment in education, and provides resources and strategies for teachers, administrators, and other educational leaders who strive toward data-informed instruction that balances the use of assessment to address opportunity gaps–a critical element now more than ever as schools face the challenge of education in the era of COVID. Ultimately, the book hopes to shift the focus away from the rhetoric of punitive testing back to the important support quality assessments can provide in producing accurate and timely information to maximize student learning.See More
