"The Role of Assessment in Schools" looks at the conceptual aspects of tests and testing and also gives practical guidelines on how to use tests to their best effect. It considers the development of tests, the types and scope of tests, their application and interpretation, and answers questions on who wants testing, whether the test is appropriate or biased, and whether the results are consistent?.
