Educational assessment, at one time a relatively uncontroversial subject, is now riven by a diversity of views. The most crucial division is between those who continue to believe in the effectiveness of objective assessment techniques and those how favor alternative methods. This book presents an analysis of the strengths, weaknesses and rationales for both. Cunningham has deliberately set out of shave back the data to present a short textbook that is structured to allow easy access to the basic information and provide an easy-to-use practical tool.
