This article reports findings on growth in three science teachers' expertise with interpretation of student work over one year of participation in a program. The program was designed to strengthen classroom assessment in the middle grades. Using a framework for classroom assessment expertise, the authors analyzed patterns of teacher learning, and the roles of the professional program and the quality of the assessments provided with teachers' instructional materials.
