First of all, Marzano is NOT a K-12 teacher nor has he ever been (going by the About the Author section). He is a meta-researcher, which means he doesn't even do original research. He takes a load of research other groups have done, reanalyzes it, then gives his own take on it all. This book is something administrators will talk about because they too, are not in the classroom. It is not feasible for any working teacher to apply the principles that Marzano suggests. In theory - where Marzano lives - the stuff is great. But in practice, his suggestions border on the moronic. Some of his statements for evidence don't even make sense, and his use of numbers (I teach science and can read between the lines of data) are pathetic at times (good data, but lousy conclusion). Chapter 3 really outlines what he suggests so borrow a copy for 15 minutes, read chapter 3, and find another book. Kudos to you teachers trying to hone your craft though! I suggest "Test Better, Teach Better" by Popham.

If you're not burned out, bogged down, or "just faking it 'til you make it," this is a great piece for aiding your teaching practice. Like any academic work, Marzano utilizes the strongest research findings in the field of assessment to support his suggestions for "best practices." While some reviewers may not see the potential for "real world" application, I've been able to implement several methods suggested by Marzano into my practice as a classroom teacher. Naturally, you may need to ease into some of the methods until you feel comfortable, or you may have to implement certain elements slowly as to warm your administration up to a new way of doing things. However, if you are truly an educator with an eye on assessing your students in a manner which engages and invests them in your curriculum, you could do much worse than this work.

Like much of Marzano's other work this book is FILLED with references that support his research ideas. If you just accept that his ideas are valid (and according to all his research, they are) you can skim over that portion of the book. Then you can get into the meat of his book - how to assess and grade in your classroom.

There were many ideas that I could adapt to my 150 student/5 periods a day classroom. There were also quite a few ideas that could only work in an elementary setting of 25-30 students per day. He does address ways to get around this problem in some instances. Overall, I will try and introduce several ideas a marking period into my high school classroom. This book has opened my eyes to a different way of thinking about assessment and grading.

While I sometimes find Marzano's books a little heavy-handed on the research component, I did appreciate and use many portions of this book. In my work as an educational administrator supporting the development and implementation of a standards-based report card, I especially used the sections on Type I-III tasks and their alignment with scoring rubrics.

This was for a grad school class. It is much cheaper to buy through Amazon than through the bookstores, so that is a perk. I found this text to be useful too; relevant and applicable to my job.

I am not big on reading text books, but the way this text book is written it makes it easier to understand. It is also very informative.

Use as a resource. The market for education books is saturated with Marzano and company books, but that doesn't mean they are good.
