Product Description

Many common assessment policies not only don't reveal what students learn but also harm their motivation and achievement.  This book guides you in developing a better way by adopting new assessment routines that reveal your students' understanding and promote learning rather than just measure it.  Seasoned educator Myron Durek reveals how to tailor your grading practices to

  • Ensure grades measure what students know without punishing them for factors outside their control.
  • Avoid the busy work and grade inflation that often come from grading homework assignments.
  • Create unit plans that make assessment criteria crystal-clear to students.
  • Use retesting so students can improve their scores.

Use the book's reproducible forms, templates, and examples to quickly support new grading approaches that contribute to, rather than hinder, student's success.
