Additional Book Details

Supercharge your formative assessment skills and watch student learning soar!

Teachers
routinely ask and answer a series of three questions with and for
students: Where are my students headed? Where are they right now? How
can I close the gap between where they are and where I want them to be?
This text suggests that teachers also ask these parallel questions of
themselves:

Where am I going?What can formative assessment practice look like?Where am I currently in my formative assessment practice?How do I close the gap?

Readers
are then encouraged to select a specific aspect of formative assessment
to investigate, explore relevant personal practice relevant to that
aspect, implement necessary changes, reflect on those changes, and
continue the change process.

This practical guide can be used by
individual teachers or collaboratively as a study guide for a learning
community. The authors describe an effective four-step process for
improving
teachers′ formative assessment practices that provides opportunities to
reflect, consider alternative instructional approaches, and apply what
they have learned. Case studies provide examples of formative assessment
in practice, along with examples of teacher-implemented changes. A
companion website includes an array of tools and templates for
organizing, gathering, and systematically using information to
strengthen formative assessment skills.
