Book Description

If you ever have students who are reluctant to tell you when they don’t understand something—or worse, tell you they understand when they really don't—then here's a book that gives you lots of ways to check for understanding. Learn why typical methods to check for understanding are usually ineffective. And explore formative assessment techniques that work in any subject area and grade level. Extensive classroom examples show you how to use these formative assessments to correct misconceptions, improve learning, and model good study skills for individual students or across multiple classrooms.

This book is a must have for any classroom teacher, support specialist, administrator, and curriculum specialist. In an era of standardized testing and out-of-controll pacing guides, this book reestablishes the goal of student success within the classroom. Lots of great ideas.

Excellent! As an in-classroom teacher, I very much appreciated that this book couched the formative assessment strategies in the context of research. Easy to read, easy to use, plus a wealth of references!

The text is assigned reading for a graduate education course. It is very cmprehensive and gives excellent examples of how to employ the tips and techniques in a real classroom setting. I will certainly keep it on hand once the course is completed to refer to in the future.

I am going for my Master's degree and I am currently in my second class and this book compared to the book that we had to read in the last class is so much easier to understand. It gets to the point while giving appropriate descriptions of Educational terminology. Highly reccommend it.

As a Director of Assessment, I find this to be a very helpful resource when working with principals and teachers to improve their practice. It offers many concrete applications of informal and formal assessment processes that teachers find work well in their classrooms.

I bought this for a grad school class. The text has some useful tables and list in it that can be used for quick references when writing for class. It was practical for that purpose. It is much less expensive to buy college texts from Amazon than bookstores too.
