“Teachers usually receive little practical guidance around assessment. This is the genius of Katie White’s new book, Student Self-Assessment. With her customary clarity and creativity, Katie makes the case for the necessity of self-assessment, offers relevant case studies, and provides a wealth of strategies, reflection prompts, and reproducible resources. She answers the questions staff in our district are asking: ‘How can portfolios be effective tools for student growth? How can we support students in becoming independent learners?’ This book is a goldmine for teachers seeking to build their students’ capacity for self-assessment!”

Shannon Daly, Teacher-Consultant for Assessment and Literacy

“In Student Self-Assessment, author Katie White honors students, teachers, and families as partners in the learning cycle. She guides educators through the self-assessment process with realistic starting points, manageable chunks, and ready-to-use tools. Teachers are empowered to embed self-assessment into the everyday learning of students at all stages of development. White focuses on ‘elements of imagination, hope, resilience, and inspiration’ as the catalyst for learning that self-assessment offers. I highly recommend this book to educators who are ready to embark on this powerful and essential journey.”

Pamela Sawatzky, Learning Consultant, Sun West School Division, Saskatchewan, Canada

Student Self-Assessment is for educators who understand assessment as a catalyst for learning. Author Katie White offers research-based rationale and explanation of the purposes, principles, and practices of self-assessment, and illustrates how teachers can implement self-assessment in authentic, meaningful, and effective ways across grade levels so students experience increased efficacy, decision-making, and independence. This book is full of practical tools and reproducibles for teachers to collaboratively support students taking active responsibility for their own learning. It is a must-read for those with an unfailing optimism that all students can learn and grow!”

Nina Pak Lui, Assistant Professor of Education, Trinity Western University, Langley, B.C., Canada

“Katie White’s Student Self-Assessment is the ultimate guide for creating a self-assessment system that works in any school or classroom. Katie invites educators to self-reflect and determine how to implement the process for their specific situation, using a myriad of resources and tools for elementary, middle, and high school students. This is an essential resource for any educator supporting students as they reflect on, value, take ownership of, appreciate, and celebrate their learning.”
