In Seven Strategies of Assessment Learning, author Jan Chappuis gives K to 12 classroom teachers an incisive look at seven practical strategies structured around three essential questions—Where am I going? Where am I now? and How can I close the gap? Complete with research-based recommendations about assessment practices for improving student achievement, the book is sequenced to help teachers easily weave formative assessment practices into daily teaching and assessment activities at all levels. After introducing the strategies and the research base for formative assessment practices, the remaining chapters explain each strategy in detail, provide a research-based rationale for using the strategy, describe how the strategy can be applied in contexts ranging from kindergarten through high school in a range of subject areas, and offer instructions for carrying out core procedures and suggestions for adaptations. The new features new, more recent research, extended examples of the strategies, and improved features that make the text easier to use for collaborative learning. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded video, Discussion Questions, Reflection Journal, and Defining Assessments.
