-Dr. Gavin Reid,
Independent Educational Psychologist
The book will be of significant use to all teachers who need information and guidance on how to assess for a purpose and the authors provide step by step instructions. Examples are provided to illustrate their points and any technical language is clearly explained. I agree with Dr Gavin Red that this book is a `must have' for schools. -- Special Educational Needs Magazine
This text would be useful in all schools as a reference book as well as a training manual. It would be equally useful for specialist teachers and psychologists and for those who are preparing to apply for the renewal of their Assessment Practising Certificate.-- Lois Hood
