For teachers and administrators, Popham (education, UCLA) provides a four-step framework for instruction that will measure up to the new age of accountability and reach the expectations of administrators, parents, taxpayers, professional standards, and the needs of students. Addressing the role that assessment plays throughout the instructional process, he covers the most significant decision making areas a teacher faces from both an instructional and assessment perspective: curriculum determination and instructional design, monitoring, and evaluation.
