Imparting knowledge is one thing and measuring the same is another. Similarly, perfect teaching is one thing and evaluating the learners is another. In fact, for measurement and evaluation of the level of knowledge of learners requires a particular acumen and a different skills. In today s educational world, the scholars have accorded the status of an art to the capability of an educator or teacher, which he or she possesses and exhibits in testing and ranking his or her pupils at various intervals of time. Now, we find expert evaluators and examiners, who specialise in conducting different tests, and examinations. In fact, all teachers, should master this skills. However, this is a new stream, which demands flawless methods and techniques for carrying out the exercises, known as Evaluation and Measurement.

Assessment and evaluation are central to the educational system of a country as they impact the national policy of education, besides helping in framing future strategies for growth of the nation. The process of measurement, evaluation and assessment is interlinked with curriculum and teaching–learning methods enabling learning outcomes to be determined. Good quality assessment is instrumental in determining a student’s future goal and career path, besides impacting all stakeholders of the school system. An effective school system cannot be built where the students are examined on the basis of mere paper and pencil tests. Today schools have access to the use of a range of techniques for student’s assessment, teacher performance, school’s effectiveness and the evaluation of the school system as a whole. The aim of the book is to provide an in-depth knowledge and understanding of measurement, evaluation and statistics in education—both from theoretical and practical aspects. It also offers a concise, step-by-step guide that helps in making assessment simple and economical in terms of money and time, besides being a boon for any institution. The book contains effective strategies to facilitate enhanced learning by explaining the interpretation of test scores. It has several Illustrative examples drawn from the author′s experience. Portfolios are proving to be a great way of assessment, and how to incorporate them in the teaching–learning process is dealt with in detail. Instructions for constructing rubrics for evaluation of different domains of learning, i.e., cognitive, psychomotor and affective have also been included in the book. Item analysis, basic statistics and different types of tests are discussed elaborately.

This is a key text for all students who need to pass the Teacher Training Agency (TTA) Numeracy Test to gain Qualified Teacher Status. The book has been awarded the kitemark of approval by the TTA. Schools now have to cope with a great deal of numerical information. Some of this is for day-to-day planning and monitoring, and some for strategic management and evaluation. Because of these additional demands, teachers in training are now required to demonstrate their skills and knowledge of basic arithmetic and statistics before they can be awarded Qualified Teacher Status. This book will help them revise their numeracy and acquire the necessary skills. It will also be of great value to newly qualified and established teachers.

An issue in the current push for reform in mathematics education is the call to address statistics at the precollege level. This volume represents the emerging findings of an interdisciplinary collaboration among a group of mathematics educators, cognitive scientists, teachers, and statisticians to construct an understanding of how to introduce statistics education and assessment for students in elementary and secondary schools. A premise shared by the contributors to this volume is that when students are introduced to statistics at the K-12 level and provided with opportunities to do statistics that are related to actual life situations, they will be better prepared for decision making in the real world. The interdisciplinary nature of the group of researchers stimulated a lively interchange of ideas for enhancing the learning, teaching, and assessment of statistical understanding, which is reflected in this volume. Mathematics educators contribute their insights into how teachers teach mathematical ideas and heighten our awareness of the ecological needs of the current mathematics classroom. Cognitive scientists share their understanding of developmental differences in learning and present theoretical perspectives that contribute to the design of effective learning environments. Classroom teachers share their ideas about classroom activities and assessment of student learning, as well as their concerns for in-service training and workshops to help teachers acquire skills in this new content area. Statisticians offer their understanding of what is feasible to teach in the early grades, and what their view is of statistical literacy. The book is organized around four interdependent themes: content, teaching, learning, and assessment. By focusing their respective chapters on particular themes, the authors intend to cultivate a better understanding of how each relates to improvements in statistics education. This is the first book to: * address statistics learning in grades K-12, * address issues of statistical curriculum content in grades K-12, * address issues of assessment of statistics learning in grades K-12, * bring issues of technology instruction and assessment in statistics education in grades K-12, and * look at teacher education for statistics instruction in grades K-12. This is a must-read book for both practitioners and researchers involved in K-12 mathematics education.
