Assessment GOLDSTEIN, Harvey Problems, Developments and Statistical Issues

Assessment: Problems, Developments and Statistical Issues Edited by Harvey Goldstein and Toby Lewis Assessment can be used for job appraisal, performance evaluation, professional certification and examining students. The book reviews the wider social and educational implications of different assessment procedures. The statistical and non statistical properties of assessment are addressed: chapters discuss whether assessment is objective measurement or subjective judgement and what the aims of assessment are, whether for diagnosis and feedback, for certification or for institutional accountability. Experts from various areas of assessment have contributed chapters covering bias, comparison of institutions, statistical analysis of institution based assessments, integrity of public examinations, standards in examinations, errors in grading, moderation procedures, assessment in the workplace, vocational assessment, international comparisons, the history of assessment, the influence of assessment on learning, and the educational testing industry. The intended audience is international, and includes teachers, educationists, policy makers and personnel managers.
