Making Classroom Assessment Work: New Zealand Edition
In simple and easy to follow steps, Making Classroom Assessment Work shows how teachers can use assessment to boost learning. When students know what needs to be achieved, are responsible for self-assessing, and get feedback that shows the next steps for success, that’s assessment for learning. The results are engaged, self-directed lifelong learners.
This book illustrates how to:
involve students in learning and assessment
collect evidence of learning with students
give high-quality feedback
share learning achievements with parents
hold student–parent–teacher meetings to evaluate learning and achievement.
