A forward-thinking look at performance assessment in the21st century
Next Generation Assessment: Moving Beyond the Bubble Test toSupport 21st Century Learning provides neededanswers to the nation's growing concerns about educational testingin America. Drawing on research and the experiences of leadingstates and countries, this new book examines how performanceassessments can offer a feasible alternative to current high stakestests. As parents, educators, and policymakers have increasinglycriticized the effects of the teaching to the test mandate from theNo Child Left Behind Act, the need for this resource has never beenmore critical.

This summary volume to Beyond the Bubble Test speaks tothe nationwide unease about current tests' focus on low-levelskills, like recalling and restating facts, rather thanhigher-order skills such as problem-solving, analyzing, andsynthesizing information. It illustrates how schools can useauthentic assessments to improve teaching and learning as theyinvolve students in conducting research, designing investigations,developing products and solutions, using technology, andcommunicating their ideas in many forms. This important book:
* Serves as a must-have resource for those interested in the mostcurrent research about how to create valid and reliable performanceassessments
* Explains how educators can improve practice by developing,using, and scoring performance assessments
* Helps policymakers and educators accurately assess the benefitsand possibilities of adopting performance assessmentsnationally

If you're an educator, researcher, graduate student, districtadministrator, or education policy specialist, Next GenerationAssessment is an indispensable resource you'll turn to againand again.
