Making Classroom Assessment Work, 3rd Edition

Author: Anne Davies

This best-selling book includes powerful ideas with simple and easy-to-follow steps. In this book, Dr. Anne Davies leads educators on the path to quality classroom assessment – the bridge between what research shows and what teachers can do in their classrooms to prepare students for their lifelong learning journey. This updated edition of Making Classroom Assessment Work offers more ideas and examples of using assessment for learning to guide instruction, provide feedback, collect evidence of learning, present evidence of success and produce accurate standards-based report cards. The thoughtful and thought-provoking framework provides a guide for teachers to follow from involving students, parents, and community members in the assessment process to evaluating and reporting progress.

Chapters include: 
• Building the Foundation for Classroom Assessment
• Beginning with the End in Mind
• Describing Success
• Evidence of Learning
• Involving Students in Classroom Assessment
• Collecting, Organizing, and Presenting Evidence
• Communicating About Learning
• Evaluating and Reporting

Use the end-of-chapter activities as a book study guide, by yourself or with a group, to create a comprehensive draft assessment plan of your own.

Knowing What Counts series

Authors: Kathleen Gregory, Caren Cameron, Anne Davies, Sandra Herbst, and Brenda Augusta

The Knowing What Counts Series includes four books:

Each book focuses on practical ways for teachers to involve students in their own assessment by using criteria and goal setting in the classroom. The authors also provide different scenarios that outline how students can demonstrate their learning to others, take active roles in conferences with parents, and become involved in creating portfolios and preparing collections of evidence. All books include classroom ideas, cross-curricular examples, responses to commonly asked questions, and reproducibles.
