Assessment in Perspective

Focusing on the reader behind the numbers

Assessment is much more than just a number. This thoughtful book shows teachers how to use a range of assessment types -- from reading conference notes and student work to running records and tests -- together to uncover the real strengths and weaknesses of a reader. It also demonstrates that involving students in their own assessment is key to helping them set goals, monitor their progress, and celebrate growth. This innovative reference emphasizes the importance of assessing using varied sources, and explains how looking at different types side-by-side reveals patterns or inconsistencies. When assessment is viewed in this integrated way, instruction can meet high standards and still be developmentally appropriate.
