“This book thoughtfully explores the work of creating assessments purposely designed to make a difference in student learning. Using its practical five-step process, teachers can easily move from unpacking rigorous standards to writing and administering effective assessments that will provide usable information about what to do next in the classroom. The book also contains creative and realistic suggestions about how to use these results to engage students in their own learning. Practitioners will truly value the ease design in five brings to their work with assessment.”
