The Handbook of Human and Social Conditions in Assessment is the first book to explore assessment issues and opportunities occurring due to the real world of human, cultural, historical, and societal influences upon assessment practices, policies, and statistical modeling. With chapters written by experts in the field, this book engages with numerous forms of assessment: from classroom-level formative assessment practices to national accountability and international comparative testing practices all of which are significantly influenced by social and cultural conditions. A unique and timely contribution to the field of Educational Psychology, the Handbook of Human and Social Conditions in Assessment is written for researchers, educators, and policy makers interested in how social and human complexity affect assessment at all levels of learning. Organized into four sections, this volume examines assessment in relation to teachers, students, classroom conditions, and cultural factors. Each section is comprised of a series of chapters, followed by a discussant chapter that synthesizes key ideas and offers directions for future research. Taken together, the chapters in this volume demonstrate that teachers, test creators, and policy makers must account for the human and social conditions that shape assessment if they are to implement successful assessment practices which accomplish their intended outcomes.

The Handbook of Educational Psychology presents a clear definition of the term and its fields of application. It indicates what state of the art research is offering for all in Education and Psychology to assist in our theorisation of, and transactions for, positive change. In its chapters on psychological research it presents expositions of human development and individual differences, and of the social and cultural influences, and other contextual considerations, affecting student efficacy – notably the processing, conditional, and declarative strategic-outcome dimensions of achievement, cognition, communication, motivation, values and beliefs. Chapters on schooling and other educational contexts and settings within which change opportunities occur for individuals and their communities reflect specific applications of research in educational psychology in relation to better approaches to learning, improved pedagogy, more collaborative, inclusive and productive assessment and evaluation, and how teacher preparation might better reflect and inform educational research. The Handbook has been constructed deliberately to include contributions from prominent researchers in Asia that enable comparisons in theorisation to be drawn from East and West as readers peruse this comprehensive collection of authorative work.
