A New Vision of Excellence in Assessment


Greetings and welcome to the realm of
student-involved classroom assessment FOR student learning!


Over the past two decades, Rick Stiggins has led efforts to help practitioners understand and learn how to apply this breakthrough idea. Rick advocates the development of a long-absent foundation of assessment literacy among teachers, school leaders, policy makers and school communities. He is a tireless teacher of sound assessment policy and practice in all contexts.

Here Rick describes the development of local school district assessment systems that balance the use of classroom assessment with other applications. His vision relies high-quality assessment throughout the system and on student involved assessment used in support of student learning.
