Classroom Assessment Resource Center
In today’s classroom, confirmation of student progress and learning is a necessary skill for all P-12 educators. Assessment is recognized as an essential “tool” in every educator’s “toolbox.” This site is designed to provide professional information, resources, references, and other materials about classroom assessment specifically for teachers. In addition to accessible information or useful sites, an assessment diary section where teachers comment on the effectiveness of their assessments is provided along with an assessment blog. Finally, a Q & A is provided where teachers can submit their assessment questions and answers/responses are provided to those questions.
This site is managed by Dr. Raymond Witte, Associate Professor in the Department of Educational Psychology at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. As a licensed school psychologist, Dr. Witte has extensive experience (over 20 years in the field of education) with educational assessment practices in the classroom as well as academic and behavioral interventions for a wide variety of students (ranging from preschool to high school and even post-secondary). In addition, this site is maintained by Ms. Lindsay Whittle, a first year school psychology graduate student and a former intervention specialist/tutor for the Northwest School District in Cincinnati, Ohio.
