“Assessment continues to be a topic of great debate among educators. Concise Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About Assessment and Grading breaks down the process piece by piece and then builds it back into a meaningful system that shifts assessment from being the end part of a student’s educational journey to an ongoing process that drives next steps.”

Lorrie Hulbert, principal, Windsor, New York

“The authors of Concise Answers to Frequently Asked Questions About Assessment and Grading . . . view assessment through the lenses of hope, efficacy, and achievement within an authentic culture of learning. They emphasize moving learning forward and allowing students to have ownership and agency by providing opportunities for self-assessment and goal setting. . . . This affective approach—understanding that assessment can be nurturing and caring—is something all educators need right now.”
