"The SAGE Handbook of Research on Classroom Assessment" provides scholars, professors, graduate students, and other researchers and policy makers in the organizations, agencies, testing companies, and school districts with a comprehensive source of research on all aspects of K-12 classroom assessment. The handbook emphasizes theory, conceptual frameworks, and all varieties of research (quantitative, qualitative, mixed methods) to provide an in-depth understanding of the knowledge-base in each area of classroom assessment and how to conduct inquiry in the area. It presents classroom assessment research to convey, in depth, the state of knowledge and understanding that is represented by the research, with particular emphasis on how classroom assessment practices affect student achievement and teacher behavior. Editor James H. McMillan and five associate editors bring the best thinking and analysis from leading classroom assessment researchers on the nature of the research, making significant contributions to this prominent and hotly debated topic in education. The Handbook is organized into six sections to present research in most areas of classroom assessment: section A: provides an overview of connections between classroom assessment and learning and motivation theory and research, as well as technical and measurement issues that are important for reading subsequent chapters; section B: includes chapters on technical measurement principles and topics that help assure the quality of research on classroom assessment; section C: focuses on formative assessment, from theoretical perspectives to considerations of gathering evidence, giving feedback to students, and instructional correctives. Section D: includes two chapters on summative assessment and grading; section E: emphasizes important methods of classroom assessment, including different types of items and tests, and performance and portfolio assessment; section F: contains chapters on assessment for differentiated instruction, special needs students, and different subjects, including mathematics, reading, writing, social studies, and science. Contributing authors include Sue Brookhart, Heidi Andrade, Paul Black, Ayita Ruiz-Primo, Sarah Bonner, Margaret Heritage, Suzanne Lane, Gavin Brown, and Carol Tomlinson.
