Product Description

Assessment in Perspective moves beyond the numbers to uncover the stories they tell. This book discusses how to use a range of assessment typesfrom reading conference notes and student work to running records and state teststogether to uncover the strengths and weaknesses of a reader. The authors share a framework for thinking about the purpose, method, and types of different assessments.

Assessment in Perspective emphasizes the importance of triangulating data by using varied sources, both formal and informal, across multiple intervals and explains how looking at different types of assessments side-by-side uncovers patterns or inconsistencies. The authors demonstrate that students are a valuable source of data. Letting students in on the process of assessment is key to helping them set goals, monitor their own progress, and celebrate growth. When assessment is viewed in this integrated way, instruction can meet high standards and still be developmentally appropriate.
