How students are assessed can determine not only the quality, type, and degree of education they receive, but has long-term consequences for their future. Assessment by standardized testing often labels poor and minority children in ways that exclude them from opportunities, while failing to measure their true potential. Assessment for Equity and Inclusion confronts the debate between standardized testing and alternative assessment methods, locating strategies of assessment by which students are included rather than excluded.

"Aptly addresses state-of-the-profession issues. Thoughtful, scholarly papers followed by multifaceted reflections and implications sections help the reader answer 21st century questions. This yearbook should be must reading for teacher education faculty and students." Elaine Jarchow, Dean College of Education Texas Tech University "Bravo! These authors carve new mind-sets in education by examining what is important to us (purpose and vision); what ideals, norms, and practices generate high-quality intellectual growth for students and ourselves; and what challenges and struggles help transform teaching, learning, and leading." Mary John O'Hair, Associate Dean College of Education University of Oklahoma The Fifth Annual Yearbook of the Association of Teacher Educators focuses on a topic vital to the welfare of our country: the education of our nation's teachers. This volume provides you with the latest research and guidelines for improving the education of preservice and inservice teachers. One of the most recent goals added to the Goals 2000 program emphasizes the professional development of teachers. In order to be successful, educational reform and increased student learning must be linked to the continued professional development of teachers. This edition of the ATE Yearbook examines four aspects of teacher education: context, process, curriculum, and communication. Each section focuses on one of these themes and includes a chapter that provides the framework and overview, topic and subject studies, and a closing chapter that discusses the theme's implications. Researchers and practitioners examine the following topics: Multicultural education and diversity Subject perspectives of new and experienced teachers School and university partnerships Local communities and global perspectives The information in this yearbook is designed to offer insight and spark debate about the current state of the continuum of professional development.
