Multifaceted Assessment in Early Childhood is ideal for those on upper-division undergraduate courses and first-level graduate courses in early childhood education assessment. The book covers the various measures used in a range of assessment dimensions, and includes valuable information regarding young children with special needs and English Language Learners, which has rarely been touched upon in other textbooks. The chapters are focused on student accessibility and include practical applications of key concepts.

Features and benefits:

Covers a range of assessment concepts, including - Formative (uses feedback from learning to adapt teaching) -Summative (i.e. tests, quizzes) -Authentic (focuses on complex/deeper tasks) -Standardized


Includes coverage of assessment for English language learners and children with special needs -- topics that are not provided enough coverage in other books

(including Wortham, McAfee, Puckett and Mindes).

Wright's writing style grabs and engages the reader in the topic. Two of our reviewers who use Wortham specifically cited Wright's writing style as a reason they would adopt our book. A McAfee reviewer is likely to switch for the same reason.

"I have every intention of using the text. It is the best one I've ever read. I really think this will help my students put all these little parts together and have a deeper understanding of assessment practices. The text is really excellent." -- Kathryn Sharp
"I think the casepoints, websites, and examples of assessments would be helpful for pre-service teachers. This text would also be a good reference for teachers who are in the field due to its many resources." -- Beth Satterfield
"It gives a comprehensive view of assessment that is easily understood. It delineates the issues surrounding assessment in a way that makes it possible for students to get the big picture. It helps them develop their own thinking about standardized and informal assessments." -- Susan Johns
