The field of educational psychology draws from a variety of diverse disciplines including human development across the life span, measurement and statistics, learning and motivation, and teaching. And within these different disciplines, many other fields are featured including psychology, anthropology, education, sociology, public health, school psychology, counseling, history, and philosophy. In fact, when taught at the college or university level, educational psychology is an ambitious course that undertakes the presentation of many different topics all tied together by the theme of how the individual can best function in an "educational" setting, loosely defined as anything from pre-school through adult education. Educational psychology can be defined as the application of what we know about learning and motivation, development, and measurement and statistics to educational settings (both school- and community-based).

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.

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.
