Classroom Assessment for Student Learning, 2/e is a combination textbook and workbook grounded in research shown to increase student motivation and learning through improved classroom assessment. This user-friendly, practical book is full of real-world examples of what assessment for learning looks like in today’s classrooms. Presented in a format appropriate for use by individuals or collaborative learning teams, the book teaches two central concepts: How to create accurate classroom assessments of all types and how to integrate assessment with instruction day to day, with a focus on student involvement.

The companion CD provides all necessary learning team resources: suggestions for forming and facilitating learning teams, suggestions for pacing the learning, and chapter-by-chapter forms and materials for completing the activities.
The Second Edition of Classroom Assessment for Student Learning focuses on the five keys to classroom assessment quality. The keys are:

Key 1: Establish a clear assessment purpose to meet information needs of all intended users
Key 2: Base instruction and assessment on clear learning targets
Key 3: Design or select all assessments to meet standards of accuracy
Key 4: Communicate summative and formative results effectively
Key 5: Involve students in the assessment process and in using the results to further learning
