Assessing & Reporting on Habits of Mind. A Developmental Series, Book 3.
Costa, Arthur L., Ed.; Kallick, Bena, Ed.
This is the third in a four-book series describing 16 types of intelligent behavior called habits of mind.

After the "Series Foreword: Thinking on the Road of Life" (David Perkins), "Preface to the Series" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick), and "Preface to Book 3" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick), there are 8 chapters: (1) "Defining Indicators of Achievement" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick); (2) "Learning Through Reflection" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick); (3) "Assessing the Habits of Mind" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick); (4) "Wondering To Be Done" (Steve Seidel); (5) "Reporting Growth" (Arthur L. Costa and Bena Kallick); (6) "Building a Culture Where High Quality Counts" (Steven Levy); (7) "Immersing Parents and Students in the Habits of Mind" (Jodi Bongard and Judy Lemmel); and (8) "Getting Started" (Arthur L.
