Book Description

If you’re at all skeptical that “formative assessment” is just another buzzword, then here’s a book that will change the way you think about the role that formative assessment can play in transforming education into a more powerful and positive process. Renowned expert W. James Popham clarifies what formative assessment really is, why it’s right for your school or classroom, and how to use this approach to improve teaching, learning, classroom climate, teacher professional development, and school performance. Whether you’re already using formative assessments, just considering them, or wondering why the ones you’re using aren’t working, this foundational guide gives you a clear pathway and steps to using formative assessments the right way.

More About the Author

Dr. Popham has spent the bulk of his educational career as a teacher. Most of his teaching took place at UCLA where, for nearly 20 years, he taught courses in instructional methods as well as courses in evaluation and measurement. Because he was aware of the perishability of professors who fail to publish, he spent his non-teaching hours affixing words to paper. A summary of his publications can be found in a 44-page, single-spaced vita. Although his books are filled with whimsy, the vita is really dull reading. Most recently, Dr. Popham was appointed to the National Assessment Governing Board.

Transformative Assessment by W. James Popham is written for an educational audience, but has much to offer for the human resource or training and development professional. The book deals with formative assessment in education. It explains the research on formative assessment and dhow to build a framework for instruction based on assessment. However, given the dearth of writings on formative assessment in adult training, there is much that can be gleaned from the pages of his book. Perhaps the most important lesson is that assessment can be a mechanism for transformation. I also highly recommend his Chapter 7 on the limitations of formative assessment.

Overall, an excellent resource book for the classroom teacher or the training professional.

I was assigned this book to read for a grad school class. Too my surprise, it is readable and relate-able to educators and administrators. Popham seems to understand the importance of change in education being based upon more than the whims of for-profit companies and people who are far away from the educational process.

The book was required for a class and I found that it was not only useful in the class but was applicable in my own classroom
