Using Formative Assessment to Enhance Learning, Achievement, and Academic Self-Regulation

By Heidi L. Andrade, Margaret Heritage

Using Formative Assessment to Enhance Learning, Achievement, and Academic Self-Regulation

Description

There is convincing evidence that carefully applied classroom assessment can promote student learning and academic self-regulation. Such assessment includes, but is not limited to, conversations with students, diagnostic test items, and co-created rubrics used to guide feedback for students themselves as well as their peers.

In this book, Heidi Andrade and Margaret Heritage, Senior Advisor at WestEd, write with the practical constraints of teaching in mind, presenting a concise resource to help pre- and in-service teachers maximize the positive impacts of classroom assessment on teaching.

The book translates work from leading experts and explains how to use assessment to improve learning by linking learning theory to formative assessment processes. Sections on goal setting, progress monitoring, interpreting feedback, and revision of goal setting make this a timely addition to assessment courses.
