This is probably the most readable textbook I have ever encountered. I congratulate Mr. Popham. Plus, if you're going to be a teacher, assessment is pretty important thing to know about.

This book has some good information. Many chapters I absolutely agreed with and found very informative.

However, I think the main points could be greatly distilled into an even more useful, short handbook for teacher's to refer to as opposed to the full textbook.

Also very elementary teacher geared.

Only a teacher with one class of students would ever be able to implement some of the improvements suggested in this book.

I'm not discounting elementary teachers, but a lot of this text is overly ideali

While extremely readable, this textbook was not one that I would recommend buying. Rent or borrow it if you can. Most of the information provided was what I would consider to be general knowledge among teachers and nothing that would be found to be new or enlightening. I found it to be rather repetitious and in need of some good editing. This was a fine supplementary text to my graduate course on classroom assessment, however I don't feel the need to hold on to it for future reference.

He uses a pretty casual tone, which makes it easier to get through. I kept thinking that it could use a better editing job, though, as some points are reviewed over and over. To me, one of the best things you can take away from reading this book is how to interpret standardized testing and the place that high stakes testing has in current classrooms.

Fairly easy read. Very informative. Many parts went over my head simply because I have a hard time with data and statistics not because of the presentation of the author. Popham did a really good job of spicing up an otherwise boring topic.
Cora Lee
One of the better textbooks I've read. It was full of practical information and very well written. Would I pick it up and read it for fun? No. Will I keep it around for further reference? Quite possibly.

This book should be required reading for every classroom teacher. If they were not required to take a course in classroom assessment this book will definately help!
