"If you want to know what the debates over performance assessment are really about...read this book! Rothman explains how assessment is related to new ideas about how studetns learn, about what is worth learning, and about who can be expected to learn ′the hard stuff.′ He shows how the politics of education is also the politics of assessment... and what it will take for thoughtful people who are concerned about our educational future to build a common view of the possible."––Lauren B. Resnick, professor, University of Pittsburgh"The question that dismays all teachers and ought to concern every parent because of what it reveals about what school can do to a child′s curiosity––′Will this be on the test?′––will never be answered again in the same way. Bob Rothman offers a rich and compelling account of the unfolding revolution in testing in America′s schools."––Richard P. Mills, Vermont commissioner of education
