Now available in paper, this version is the first comprehensive look at the process of selecting, assessing and assisting teachers in nearly a decade. Since the publication of the first Handbook, the profession of teaching has witnessed dramatic change including a greater awareness of teacher accountability, an increase in teacher testing and the development of teaching incentives. At the same time the political, social and organizational factors affecting the performance and evaluation of teachers have been subjects of intensive scrutiny. Reflecting these changes, the new Handbook contains 25 new chapters, and explores current practices, issues and controversies related to the evaluation of teachers at elementary and secondary levels.

Portfolios in Teacher Education examines the relation between teaching & learning from a new perspective. Authors McLaughlin & Vogt describe teacher education courses where undergraduate & graduate students are evaluated using portfolio assessment techniques, the same methods they will one day use in their own classrooms. This allows students both to learn about current instructional methods & to experience them firsthand, informing them as teachers & learners in the process. This concept forms the basis of the text, which also explores how portfolio assessment can enable university educators to move from traditional methods of testing to a more authentic assessment that reflects each student's real progress. In addition to presenting portfolios as a method to evaluate achievement of course learning goals, the authors also address the use of portfolio assessment in other contexts, including admission to universities, admission to teacher education programs, student teaching, job interviews & inservice teacher evaluations. Readers interested in incorporating the use of portfolios in undergraduate & graduate courses will find the accessible style of this handbook useful & informative. Portfolios in Teacher Education is an important new addition to the literature on teacher preparation & will be valuable to all university educators interested in implementing authentic assessment practices.
