Seven Strategies of Assessment for Learning, 2e

 

This combination textbook and workbook organizes research-based recommendations about classroom assessment practices around three formative assessment questions: “Where am I going?”; “Where am I now?”; and “How can I close the gap?” The framework is sequenced so that educators can easily weave assessment for learning practices into daily teaching and assessment activities.

 

Presented in a format appropriate for use by individuals or collaborative learning teams, the book helps educators apply high-impact formative assessment practices more intentionally in their classrooms. The seven strategies are:

 

Where Am I Going?

Strategy 1: Provide students with a clear and understandable vision of the learning target.

Strategy 2: Use examples and models of strong and weak work.

Where Am I Now?

Strategy 3: Offer regular descriptive feedback during the learning.

Strategy 4: Teach students to self-assess and set goals for next steps.

How Can I Close the Gap?

Strategy 5: Use evidence of student learning to determine next steps in teaching.

Strategy 6: Design focused instruction, followed by practice with feedback.

Strategy 7: Provide students opportunities to track, reflect on, and share their learning progress.

 

The companion CD includes 42 video clips of teachers and students using the seven strategies and discussing their impact on motivation and learning.  Additionally, it provides all necessary learning team resources: suggestions for forming and facilitating learning teams, suggestions for pacing the learning, and chapter-by-chapter forms and materials for completing the activities.
