A review in Assessment & Development Matters (Vol. 1 No. 2 Summer 2009) states: 'The book covers a lot of ground. It is particularly useful that case studies are used to illustrate how instruments might be used, as well as actual test items, as together this helps readers understand what a test is like in practice. All in all, a very useful book.'
