An award-winning journalist, Rothman cuts through the assessment debate-a debate often characterized by misrepresentations and jargon-to offer a highly accessible examination of the shift in thinking about testing. He underscores that any change must begin with the And: what we want students to know and be able to do. Such changes demand a new way of knowing what students can achieve-and a system that enables them to achieve.
