Classroom Assessment: Linking Instruction and Assessment [and] Study Guide.
North Carolina State Dept. of Public Instruction, Raleigh.
The bond that links quality assessment and effective teaching is clarified for North Carolina teachers in the context of the state's continued emphasis on effective schooling. This manual begins a statewide effort to promote assessment literacy among educators. It is emphasized that no single type of assessment can meet all of the purposes of assessment or information needs of the various educational decision makers. The assessment cycle model of assessment on which the discussion is based highlights the interplay among learning targets as defined in the North Carolina "Standard Course of Study," assessment methods, and decisions and actions. The following chapters contain specific information about: (1) "Classroom Assessment and Instruction"; (2) "Clarifying Learning Targets"; (3) "Using Multiple Assessment Strategies"; (4) "Making Decisions and Taking Action"; and (5) "Documenting and Communicating." Contains glossary. The study guide is included. (Contains one table and six references.) (SLD)
