### Abstract:

Intends to encourage teachers and researchers to include assessment of non-cognitive attributes and to use techniques in addition to paper-and-pencil tests that focus on typical problems. This book illustrates evidence-based practices that school teachers and researchers can experiment in their lessons to bring about meaningful learning outcomes.
