Learn everything you need to know to implement an integrated system of assessment and grading that will enhance your teaching and your students' learning. Dr. Robert J. Marzano details the specific benefits of formative assessment--assessment that is used during instruction rather than at the end of a course or unit. He explains how to design and interpret three different types of formative assessments, how to track student progress, and how to assign meaningful grades, even if a school or district continues to use a traditional grading system. Detailed examples brings each concept to life, and exercises help reinforce the content.
