About this book

Gordon shows how we can use assessment to support teaching and develop students' competencies. Between 2011 and 2013, Gordon chaired an interdisciplinary commission of scholars and thinkers, who connected transformative research and ideas on learning, teaching, measurement, the nature of tests, intelligence, capability, technology, and policy.

Reviews

"Gordon and Rajagopalan offer a cogent and compelling analysis of educational testing today and tomorrow. They show how over-emphasis on accountability has distorted teaching and learning, how educational goals are changing, and how emergent technologies can enable fundamentally different kinds of assessments to truly support the development of all students to their fullest potential. Once in a great while, a book is written that simply must be read. This is such a book. " - Edward Haertel, Jacks Family Professor Emeritus of Education, Graduate School of Education, Stanford University, USA

"In The Testing and Learning Revolution, Gordon and Rajagopalan and their contributors brilliantly remind us of a time when the three major components of an educational system teaching, learning, and assessment were the primary responsibility of educators, not politicians or the federal government. " - Gerunda B. Hughes, Professor and Director, Office of Institutional Assessment and Evaluation, Office of the Provost, Howard University, USA
