Arguing that formative assessment can fundamentally transform the way a teacher teachers, Popham (emeritus professor, University of California-Los Angeles Graduate School of Education and Information Studies) cuts through the jargon and hype to explain what formative assessment is and isn't, and what it can and can't do. He reviews the research supporting formative assessment's effectiveness, and asserts that familiarity with this research is the key to preserving both teacher sanity and district funds. He offers step-by-step guidance on how to build frameworks for formative assessment and how to carry out each of the process's four levels: teachers' instructional adjustments, students' learning tactic adjustments, a classroom climate shift, and school-wide implementation. The book is for teachers and school administrators. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
