DESCRIPTION : Take the confusion out of assessment, and make it work to enhance the learning process-every day! Assessment and evaluation are central to educational reform, and they represent major shifts in thinking about learning, about schools, and about teaching. Assessment as Learning represents one of these crucial changes, but it encompasses more than just using a variety of new techniques. The concept of Assessment as Learning allows teachers to use their judgment about children's understanding to inform the teaching process and to determine what to do for individual children. This timely resource takes the mystery and confusion out of assessment by reframing its purpose in student evaluation and learning. It will provide teachers and school and district administrators with: Mechanisms for effective use of assessment as learning in a variety of contexts Compelling, real-life examples and case studies drawn from the author's own experiences Sample rubrics and lesson plans as well as "Ideas for Follow-up" at the end of each chapter An understanding of the possible confusion surrounding assessment and its place in the learning process A detailed discussion of the changing role of schooling and our increasing knowledge about the complex nature of learning Learn to embrace assessment, not just as a tool for student evaluation, but as a valuable strategy for everyday classroom learning.

DESCRIPTION : Linking assessment to everday classroom instruction requires a shift in both thinking and practise. For many, the term assessment simply means grade. Using Classroom Assessment to Improve Student Learning shows how teachers can move away from using tests, letter or numerical grades or passing or failing as evidence of student learning to creating a rich classroom environment that is conducive to effective formative assessment.

DESCRIPTION : This book marks the starting point of a profound shift in assessment priorities, detailing the results of a decade-long program of research on classroom assessment environments. It demonstrates how important sound classroom assessments are to student well-being, and provides insights into the complex demands of day-to-day classroom assessment on teachers who have been taught little about assessment in their training programs. As a nation, we spend billions of dollars on educational assessment, including hundreds of millions for international and national assessments, and additional hundreds of millions for statewide testing programs. On top of these, the standardized tests that form the basis of district-wide testing programs represent a billion dollar industry. If we total all of these expensive highly-visible, politically-important assessments, we still account for less than one percent of all the assessments conducted in America's schools. The other 99 percent are conducted by teachers in their classrooms on a moment-to-moment, day-to-day, and week-to-week basis. Paradoxically, virtually all of our national, state, and local assessment resources are being devoted to research and development for large-scale assessments. This book provides specific action programs for improving the quality of the other 99 percent--the assessments that really drive what students learn and how they feel about it.
