  1. Uncovering Student Ideas in Science, Volume 1: 25 Formative Assessment Probes

    Uncovering Student Ideas in Science is loaded with classroom-friendly features to pinpoint what your students know (or think they know) so you can adjust your teaching accordingly. The 25 probes will determine your students' thinking on 44 core science topics, grouped by light, sound, matter, gravity, heat and temperature, life science, and Earth and space science. Each probe - field-tested across multiple year levels - is proven effective for helping your students recover from erroneous ideas about science. The accompanying teacher materials explain science content, give suggested connections to the Australian Curriculum: Science, present developmental considerations, summarise relevant research on learning and suggest instructional approaches from primary to high school.

  4. Grading From the Inside Out: Bringing Accuracy to Student Assessment Through a Standards-Based Mindset

    In Grading From the Inside Out, Tom Schimmer establishes that the time for grading reform is now. Traditional grading procedures no longer work due to vast changes in pedagogy and assessment. While F-12 teachers and administrators may feel hesitant about moving away from past practices or making profound changes in grading, and while it may be challenging, a change in grading to a standards-based mindset is essential for effective instruction and assessment. To help readers develop standards-based mindsets about grading, Schimmer proposes a grading paradigm based on a new approach to reporting student achievement.
