Classroom Assessment for Student Success. Student Assessment Series.
Stiggins, Richard J.
To make the transition from traditional assessment, which was often counterproductive, to an array of assessment applications that will be more constructive for students, teachers must expand their vision of the relationship between assessment and effective schools. Assessment must be used to inform classroom decision making, and it must become part of the instruction process. The following chapters lead educators through the process of finding a new view of assessment: (1) "Relating Assessment to Effective Schools"; (2) "Assessment and Student Motivation"; (3) "Achieving Excellence in Assessment"; (4) "Developing Assessment Literacy"; and (5) "A Professional Development Strategy." Appendixes contain suggested readings for learning teams and a list of standards for the self-evaluation of classroom assessment performance. (SLD)
