Assessment As Learning: Using Classroom Assessment To Maximize Student Learning.
Earl, Lorna M.
This book takes the mystery and confusion out of assessment by reframing its purpose in student evaluation and learning by providing teachers and school and district administrators with mechanisms for the effective use of assessment, real-life examples and case studies, sample rubrics and lesson plans, and a discussion of the changing role of schooling, the new understanding of learning, and the role of assessment. The chapters are: (1) "The Evolution of Assessment"; (2) "Rethinking Assessment"; (3) "Assessment of Learning, for Learning, and as Learning"; (4) "A Focus on Learning"; (5) "Assessment and Learning"; (6) "Using Assessment To Identify What Students Believe To Be True"; (7) "Using Assessment To Motivate Learning"; (8) "Using Assessment To Make Connections"; (9) "Using Assessment To Extend Learning"; (10) "Using Assessment for Reflection and Self-Monitoring"; and (11) "Using Assessment for Optimum Learning."
