they can hear us out there, but I really don't want to risk it. I want to stay here until
we absolutely have to leave.” Which is just another way of saying more waiting.

It's the end of the world. Six students have taken cover in Cortege High but shelter is little comfort when the dead outside won't stop pounding on the doors. One bite is all it takes to kill a person and bring them back as a monstrous version of their former self. To Sloane Price, that doesn't sound so bad. Six months ago, her world collapsed and since then, she's failed to find a reason to keep going. Now seems like the perfect time to give up. As Sloane eagerly waits for the barricades to fall, she's forced to witness the apocalypse through the eyes of five people who actually want to live. But as the days crawl by, the motivations for survival change in startling ways and soon the group's fate is determined less and less by what's happening outside and more and more by the unpredictable and violent bids for life—and death—inside. When everything is gone, what do you hold on to?

On April 27, 2011, just days after learning of their pregnancy, B. J. Hollars, his wife, and their future son endured the onslaught of an EF-4 tornado. There, while huddled in a bathtub in their Alabama home, mortality flashed before their eyes. With the last of his computer battery, Hollars began recounting the experience, and would continue to do so in the following years, writing his way out of one disaster only to find himself caught up in another. Tornadoes, drownings, and nuclear catastrophes force him to acknowledge the inexplicable, while he attempts to overcome his greatest fearthe impossibility of protecting his newborn son from the worlds cruelties. Hollars creates a constellation of grief, tapping into the rarely acknowledged intersection between fatherhood and fear, sacrifice and safety, and the humbling effect of losing control of our lives.

When you're writing a test, you really don't want to make any mistakes. And yet, teachers, educational test writers, and even those who specialize in assessment make them all the time. In this book, veteran testing professional Jan Gleiter breaks down the most common problems test-writers face and tells you how to solve those problems as you craft tests. Walter MacGinitie, author of the Gates-MacGinitie Reading Tests, praises the book, saying that it has the potential to bring about a genuine improvement in testing. It gives sound general advice and sensible specific guidance, using many clear examples to show how test questions and testing practices can be improved. The writing is fresh and direct, making the principles easy to understand and follow".

The concept and results of achievement testing are the subject of serious conversation for many Americans - from educators to legislators. However, few teachers and parents view such testing as an integral part of teaching and learning. Testing standards of key education organizations and opinions of concerned citizens may be fleeting guides. The history of testing, the process for developing a formal test, testing abuse, misuse, and limitations are not widely known or understood even though we realize that testing is critical and here to stay. Achievement Testing explains the complicated concepts in a clear and user-friendly way to beginning teachers and students, as well as to experienced teachers who are looking for guidance in the ever-changing educational landscape.

Back when I was seventeen, a buddy and I took a car for a test drive. I guess we really wanted to test it because we drove it all the way from the suburbs of Cleveland to Chicago. That was one of the first of many trips in my life. Since then, they have been tamer and less intense but, certainly, still exciting. Ive come across quite a few memorable people and places, and this story touches some of those experiences. We all have our little story to tell about our lives, and this is mine. It is here that I share them with you, and I hope you find some enjoyment out of it. I look forward to someday reading about your story.

Since the mid-80s several laboratories around the world have been developing techniques for the operational use of tests derived from item-generation. According to the experts, the major thrust of test development in the next decade will be the harnessing of item generation technology to the production of computer developed tests. This is expected to revolutionize the way in which tests are constructed and delivered. This book is a compilation of the papers presented at a symposium held at ETS in Princeton, attended by the world's foremost experts in item-generation theory and practice. Its goal is to present the major applications of cognitive principles in the construction of ability, aptitude, and achievement tests. It is an intellectual contribution to test development that is unique, with great potential for changing the ways tests are generated. The intended market includes professional educators and psychologists interested in test generation.

There are hundreds of computer-based credentialing exams in areas such as accounting, real estate, nursing, and securities, as well as the well-known admissions exams for college, graduate school, medical school, and law school - there is great need on the theory of testing. This book presents the statistical theory and practice behind constructing good tests e.g., how is the first test item selected, how are the next items selected, and when do you have enough items.

Humans have been forced by sheer numbers to migrate to a new galaxy with multiple habitable planets. Here, they find themselves surrounded by humanoid aliens, the Varangians, who thrive on extremely cold planets. Not direct competitors, the two races watch one another warily and after five hundred years agree on a mutually beneficial trade treaty. At first, all is well, but then three Varangians disappear in human territory. The Varangians turn to half-Varangian Commodore Nimrod Ekeroth, who heads the human environmental fleet. Now he must find out who is disappearing both Varangians and humans and troubling the alliance.
