"In the spirit of the first FACTS book, Volume 2 continues to build on a repository of effective strategies for assessment - as, of and for - learning. Keeley has done a great service to educators by compiling these strategies into an easy to access resource, providing the necessary background and helping to move these strategies into the "Next Generation" of science instruction." Author: Craig T. Gabler, Regional Science Coordinator
"Teachers everywhere are spending a lot of time and energy looking for ways to increase student achievement. Well, the answer is not a big secret, nor is it expensive. Fortunately, Page Keely has an answer. Improved performance lies in using formative assessments as an integral aspect of a lesson. In this book Keely shows how 50 formative assessments, in the form of FACTs, can lead to greater student success in science." Author: Douglas Llewellyn
"The Next Generation Science Standards provide a wide open opportunity for engagement with students and science. We are in a time of assessing for learning rather than assessment of learning. Page Keeley has provided 50 new ideas that educators at all grade levels can use to find out what their students understand and how that learning is progressing throughout instruction. It is easy to use and implement in your classroom. Science Assessment Volume 2 is a treasure trove of ideas that tie learning, instruction, and assessment together. It is a timely resource at the right time!" Author: James T. McDonald, Professor of Science Education
"This book is paramount to how students learn, question, and critically think about the real world. Page Keely’s Science Formative Assessment- Volume 2: 50 More Strategies Linking Assessment, Instruction, and Learning invites teachers to purposefully engage in the complex practices of crafting authentic student discourse in fun and energetic ways. Teachers will absolutely rave about the new probes in Mrs. Page’s insightful book!" Author: Karen Dupre Jacobs, Secondary Science Coordinator
"Differentiating instruction in science is a key pedagogical skill for teachers. Page Keely makes it seem-less for teachers in Science Formative Assessment- Volume 2: 50 More Strategies Linking Assessment. By addressing misconceptions head-on, teachers will be able to assess commonplace misconceptions and help move their students toward making a conceptual shift in scientific thought." Author: Gelyn Cornell, Elementary Science Coordinator
"Science teachers can transform their classrooms into collaborative, positive learning environments through probes highlighted in Page Keeley’s Science Formative Assessment- Volume 2: 50 More Strategies Linking Assessment. Teachers are provided strategies and probes that are designed to have their students discuss their ideas collaboratively with each other in groups, carefully listen to the ideas of their peers, modify their thinking based upon reasoning, claims, and evidence- all part of the scientific process! This informs teachers’ future instruction and builds students’ confidence and collegiality along the way." Author: Denia Puerto-Rivera, District Science Interventionist
"The probes and strategies utilized in Page Keeley’s book Science Formative Assessment- Volume 2: 50 More Strategies Linking Assessment serve as a springboard for scientific authenticity and promote inquiry in the classroom. They serve as a great foundation for checking for student understanding and guide thinking through argumentation, writing, reasoning, drawing, and discourse. As teachers of student-scientists, our job is to prepare the next generation of innovators." Author: Monica Ibanez, District Science Interventionist
"If you are a fan of Page and have her first book, volume 2 is a powerful addition to your library of formative assessment tools. If you are new to Page, you can′t lose by owning both books. These 50 strategies range from quick "on the fly" techniques to thought-probing activities that link to Page′s ′Uncovering Student Ideas′ series." Author: David Vernot, Curriculum Consultant
"As a professional development provider, I am always looking for materials that translate abstract theory into concrete practice. Keeley has hit a ′home run′! This book provides extensive examples of strategies that teachers can immediately implement to inform teaching and promote learning."Author: Joyce Tugel, Science Specialist
"Science Formative Assessment, Volume 2 contains a wealth of tools that encourage students to engage in practices such as scientific argumentation and discourse. By emphasizing the alignment of the FACT with Science and Engineering Practices, Keeley provides multiple ways for teachers to monitor more than the disciplinary core ideas being taught."Author: Susan German, Science Teacher
About the Author
Page Keeley is an author, speaker, and consultant who works with school districts and STEM organizations throughout the U.S. and internationally in the areas of formative assessment and teaching for conceptual change. She recently retired from the Maine Mathematics and Science Alliance (MMSA) where she was the Senior Science Program Director for 16 years, directing projects and developing resources in the areas of leadership, professional development, linking standards and research on learning, formative assessment, and mentoring and coaching. She has been the Principal Investigator and Project Director of three National Science Foundation–funded projects, including the Northern New England Co-Mentoring Network; PRISMS: Phenomena and Representations for Instruction of Science in Middle School; and Curriculum Topic Study: A Systematic Approach to Utilizing National Standards and Cognitive Research. In addition to NSF funded projects, she has directed state Math-Science Partnership (MSP) projects, including TIES K–12: Teachers Integrating Engineering into Science K–12, and a National Semi-Conductor Foundation grant, Linking Science, Inquiry, and Language Literacy (L-SILL). Keeley also founded and directed the Maine Governor’s Academy for Science and Mathematics Education Leadership, a replication of the National Academy for Science Education Leadership, of which she is a fellow.
Keeley is the author of eighteen books and numerous journal articles and book chapters. She is also a co-author for McGraw-Hill’s elementary and middle school science programs. Keeley taught high school science for 2 years and middle school mathematics and science for 12 years before leaving the classroom in 1996. At that time she was an active teacher leader at the state and national level. She served two terms as president of the Maine Science Teachers Association and was the District II National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) director. She received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Secondary Science Teaching in 1992, the Milken National Distinguished Educator Award in 1993, was named the AT&T Maine Governor’s Fellow in 1994.
As a nationally known professional developer and speaker, she received the National Staff Development Council’s (now Learning Forward) Susan Loucks-Horsley Award for Leadership in Science and Mathematics Professional Development in 2009, and the National Science Education Leadership Association’s Outstanding Leadership in Science Education Award in 2013. She has been a science education delegation leader for the People to People Citizen Ambassador Professional Programs, leading the South Africa trip in 2009, the China trip in 2010, the India trip in 2012, the Cuba trip in 2014, and the Peru trip in 2015.
Prior to teaching, Keeley was a research assistant in immunogenetics at the Jackson Laboratory of Mammalian Genetics in Bar Harbor, Maine. She received her B.S. in Life Sciences from the University of New Hampshire and her Masters in Science Education from the University of Maine. In 2008, Keeley was elected the sixty-third president of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA). She can be followed on Twitter @CTSKeeley and can be contacted through her website at www.uncoveringstudentideas.org or through Corwin for information about the professional development she and her colleagues provide.
