Using Classroom Assessment to Improve Teaching. The Center for Comprehensive School Reform and Improvement. Newsletter
Center for Comprehensive School Reform and Improvement
Assessment can be one of the most difficult aspects of teaching. The educational, emotional, and formative ramifications of judging a young person's work can weigh heavily on the mind of a teacher. In spite of the anxiety it poses, knowing how to assess students in order to improve instruction is a core principle of effective teaching. This month's newsletter explains why ongoing, high-quality classroom assessment is so important and provides some suggestions for how they can be developed and used.
