Confront the emerging assessment crisis in American education!
Rick Stiggins details profound changes in the mission of our schools that requires a bold new vision of excellence in assessment. He combines decades of experience with international research to define a vision that uses assessment to supercharge student learning, not merely measure it. This book:
– Analyzes the motivational psychology of being evaluated in the classroom from the student’s perspective
– Offers strategies for engaging students in self-assessment in ways that maximize their engagement and confidences as they learn
– Details the long-missing conditions of classroom assessment literacy that must be in place in local schools
