“Bailey and Jakicic have skillfully addressed the challenge of creating quality common formative assessments. This practical toolkit filled with examples and clear explanations is what every team needs to improve student learning.”

Kay Burke, author and consultant

Common Formative Assessment is one of the best toolkits for collaborative teams of educators committed to the PLC process that we have encountered. It provides the specificity and insights that can only come from authors who have not only led the PLC at Work™ process in their own school districts, but have also helped schools at all levels, in a variety of different settings, overcome the challenges inherent in deep implementation. Common Formative Assessment presents a compelling case for engaging educators in the kind of work that actually leads to improved student achievement.”
