In The Promise and Practice of Next Generation Assessment, David T. Conley presents the case for a new, comprehensive system of assessment using different measurements for different purposes. Changes in the purposes of education, he argues, demand forms of assessment that go beyond merely ranking students to supporting the ambitious aim of helping all students meet career and college readiness goals.

Praise

David Conley lucidly explains how current and next generation assessments can coalesce to benefit our students. — W. James Popham, professor emeritus, University of California, Los Angeles

David Conley seeks to provoke a much-needed dialogue about the assessments we need, how they differ from assessments that dominate the educational landscape, and why change is needed. If assessment is to serve as a positive force for educational improvement, then policy makers, practitioners, and researchers need to pay serious attention to Conley’s ideas and principles about next generation assessment. — James W. Pellegrino, codirector of the Learning Sciences Research Institute, University of Illinois at Chicago
