The topic of assessment has long dominated conversations about F–12 education. While research has revealed which assessment practices have the most positive impact on student achievement and instruction, out-of-date, unproductive assessment practices still persist. In Essential Assessment: Six Tenets for Bringing Hope, Efficacy, and Achievement to the Classroom, Cassandra Erkens, Tom Schimmer and Nicole Dimich Vagle explore six essential tenets of assessment that can deepen teachers’ understanding of assessment to meet standards and generate a culture of learning.

  1. Assessment Purpose
  2. Communication of assessment results
  3. Accurate interpretation
  4. Assessment architecture
  5. Instruction agility
  6. Student investment
When educators build their classrooms around these interconnected tenets of assessments, they can enhance students’ academic success and self-fulfilment.
