Not to belabor the point: a portion of this book explains how a specific brand of software facilitates Robert Marzano's premise about standards reporting.

That notwithstanding, the substance of this book is classic Marzano...concise and worthy of consideration. In a nutshell: track learner performance over time and use a power formula to produce averaged "standards grades" that educational community stakeholders may find more accessible than page-after-page of excruciating standards-based reporting.

I have no argument with tracking individual student performance over time. I am less enthusiastic about the use of a power formula to produce a standards grade. Current assessment technology...both summative and formative...is rarely granular enough in discrimination resolution to produce anything more than a low resolution snapshot of a student's performance. When low-resolution assessment snapshots are averaged together...with or without a weighting scheme...and perhaps with an assortment of other kinds of scores (e.g. class participation rating, WOW gold, or whatever)...the resulting performance abstraction (whether called a letter grade or a standards grade) can be misunderstood and misused in spite of its familiarity. For example, please identify the fallacy in the following statement: "My kid must be doing better in Basketweaving 101 than she is doing in Basic Puddlejumping because she got an A- compared to a B+ but she at least gets to keep driving the SUV." Okay, maybe there's more than one fallacy in this statement (laugh).

This is not an indictment of Marzano's work, rather it is a criticism of the current educational milieu in which he and countless others work. Bottom line: a well-written position paper and a useful description of software development the author is associated with.

Format: Paperback
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.

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.
