Here is the heresy of Rick Stiggins's book: He tells the truth. He sees the corrupting influence of the expensive, wasteful misapplication of assessments and the lack of a coherent system. Then he asks all the right questions. What might we create to serve student academic success and student well-being? What systems could satisfy the information needs of all instructional decision makers all year long? What if assessment didn't just identify problems but could also be used to solve them? It's time for a revolution, and The Perfect Assessment System makes a powerful battle flag. Charge! –Lily Eskelsen Garcia, President of the National Education Association
