Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As we move toward standards-based report cards in the middle school, rigorous probes to determine if a student has mastered a concept are critical for teachers to assess learning. This book provides great resources and analysis tools to assist teachers.

The book arrived early and in perfect condition. I use the book for professional development with teachers and they love the book, as do I. The probes get to the misconceptions we see in classrooms, and they follow-up probes are great for retests. The best part if the discussion of the probe itself, including looking at student work and information on research for further understanding.
