Assessment is a critical component of effective teaching and learning. Designing Effective Assessments presents F–12 educators with ten key, research-based tools to create quality assessments that provide valuable data. Authors James H. Stronge, Leslie W. Grant and Xianxuan Xu offer clear directions for incorporating these tools into daily classroom practice to make effective use of assessment data. With quality assessment processes in place, teachers at all year levels can accurately measure student mastery and shape instruction to increase achievement.
