Assessment as a Catalyst for Learning
Creating a Responsive and Fluid Process to Inspire All Students
Assessment often ends up as an afterthought and a method to punish students for not reaching proficiency. In Assessment as a catalyst for learning: Creating a responsive and fluid process to inspire all students, authors Garnet Hillman and Mandy Stalets outline how any assessment can further learning, including on-the-spot informal formative assessments, planned formal formative assessments and summative assessments to verify learning. The book is full of ready-to-use tools, strategies and flowcharts that will help teachers utilise assessment itself to help students learn.
F–12 teachers and administrators will:
- embrace assessment not as isolated events but as a clear process to empower students with hope and self-efficacy
- learn how to identify and deconstruct priority standards to build learning progressions
- apply practical steps to develop formative and summative assessments
- receive useful advice about planning daily instruction around assessment
- answer end-of-chapter reflection questions to further their understanding of the assessment process.
