When designed in ways that inspire and motivate, assessment is a gift to our students. With this resource as your guide, you'll embrace a fresh mindset where assessment becomes a process that propels meaningful learning for all. Authors Garnet Hillman and Mandy Stalets dive deep into how you can work individually or collaboratively to intentionally identify and unwrap priority standards, develop learning progressions, design assessments, and plan daily instruction.

  • Understand how to use formal and informal formative assessment as well as summative assessment to empower students and increase learning for all.

  • Analyze ways to plan backward and design mindful assessment and instruction.

  • Receive practical steps for application for developing learning progressions, summative assessments, and formative assessments.

  • Discover how to collaborate around assessment with professional learning community (PLC) concepts.
