In the age of accountability in public education, teachers’ and administrators’ effectiveness is increased by knowing what assessments are available to them and their students. The Educators’ Handbook on Effective Testing includes evaluations of over 100 tests of achievement, intelligence, teacher certification, college admission, and many more. The book also contains guidelines for educators to select, construct, and defend the tests they use. The authors of this work ensured that the tests provided were relevant to educators and met minimum validity, reliability, and objective criteria.
