Classroom Assessment and Grading That Work
Publication Date: 2006-12-01
In Classroom Assessment and Grading That Work, Robert J. Marzano provides an in-depth exploration of what he calls “one of the most powerful weapons in a teacher’s arsenal.” An effective standards-based, formative assessment program can help to dramatically enhance student achievement throughout the K–12 system, Marzano says. In addition to providing teachers with all the tools they need to create a better assessment system, Classroom Assessment and Grading That Work makes a compelling case for the potential of such a system to transform the culture of schools and districts, and to propel K–12 education to new levels of effectiveness and efficiency.
