I’ve posted several “The Best” lists on assessment-related issues over the years, and thought I’d narrow them down a bit and post a small collection.

Here they are:

Q & A Collections: Assessment
brings together all my Education Weeks post on the topic.

The Best Resources For Learning About Performance Assessment

The Best Resources For Learning About Formative Assessment

The Best Resources On ELL’s & Standardized Tests

The Best Posts On How To Prepare For Standardized Tests (And Why They’re Bad)


The Best Articles Describing Alternatives To High-Stakes Testing

The Best Resources For Learning About Effective Student & Teacher Assessments

The Best Resources On Grading Practices

The Best Rubric Sites (And A Beginning Discussion About Their Use)

Posts specifically related to ELL assessments are scattered throughout these other lists. For now, I’m going to start adding new ones here until I have time to set-up a new list:

More On Assessment is from the iTDi blog. I don’t really have a specific list for ELL assessment — yet.

Duolingo Moves Into Language Proficiency Exams is a very interesting article in Slate.

How I Incorporate Reflection Into Semester Summative Assessments

What Are Education Tests For, Anyway? is from NPR, and gives excellent short and sweet definitions of terms related to assessments.

  1. Really great list Larry, thanks for sharing this. I would also recommended another tool for assessment and monitoring student’s learning called ExamTime. The tools track learning progress based on student performance, you can find out more here: https://www.examtime.com/student/assessment-tools/
