Leading the Way is designed to help school and system leaders —both professional development and instructional leadership focused—to support educators and students in the assessment process. This detailed, practical guide, formerly titled Leading the Way to Making Classroom Assessment Work, describes indicators of successful assessment practice and ways of supporting teachers in the classroom, and provides examples of how leaders have modelled assessment for learning to colleagues and students in their school communities.
This book is jammed with examples. It offers a practical approach to the challenges of meeting traditional evaluation standards while assessing learning. The companion book in this Leaders’ Series, Transforming Schools and Systems Using Assessment: A Practical Guide, addresses the challenges faced by educators in the midst of necessary change, and offers suggestions and solutions for implementing the assessment for learning process at all levels—from district to classroom settings. The Leaders’ Series complements the bestselling book Making Classroom Assessment Work.
