Book News
Chapman, an education consultant, author, and teacher, and King, a trainer, speaker, consultant, and author, identify formative assessment tools, strategies, and activities that teachers can use to assess students' strengths and needs and plan differentiated instruction. Each strategy is customizable for individual learners, provides immediate feedback, produces data that does not require formal analysis, can be used in all grade levels and subjects, and is student and teacher friendly. They explore the benefits of differentiated assessment, research and best practices, creating a positive environment, understanding the learner, summative assessments, and strategies such as technology, choice boards, cubes, and learning stations, as well as grouping and ways to use data with five instructional planning models. This edition has a new chapter on engaging learners in self-assessment; more tools for assessing before, during, and after learning; and approaches to help students take ownership of learning.
