HD Brown's books in language teaching are generally thorough and very well written. They are a good starting point.

A pretty decent book on an incredibly boring topic. Rich with examples but concise and clear to the point infomration I learned more about assessment than I ever wanted to know.

This was a very helpful book, and I think I will be able to create better tests because of it. If you are a language teacher and you are at a loss for some means of assessing certain students' skills or language knowledge, this book can show you some ways to do so.
