Thomas A. Romberg is Sears Roebuck Foundation-Bascom Professor in Education at the National Center for Research in Mathematical Science Education at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
"The changing of assessment methods in mathematics is perhaps the largest single obstacle in the path of education reform in mathematics education. The book addresses the hurdles remaining in a clear and consistent fashion. It provides achievable alternatives and plots the paths that will have to be taken to achieve the goals of the NCTM STANDARDS." - John A. Dossey, Illinois State University, Normal, IL
