A new volume for the Experts In Assessment series focusing on assessing students' abilities as self-directed learners. Self-directed learners are defined as self-managing, self-monitoring, and self-modifying. These three dispositions need to be assessed to determine if they are being internalized and habituated over time. Arthur L Costa and Bena Kallick use "triangulation" to ensure that the assessment system is balanced and complete. Assessment "triangulation" consists of knowledge, performance, and demonstration.

This book promises to gain a lot of interest and attention merely by the fact that it is authored by the Habits of Mind experts.

Industry Reviews

"How much do students really love to learn, to persist, to passionately attach a problem or a task? ..to watch some of their prized ideas explode and to start anew? ...to go beyond being merely dutiful or long-winded? Let us assess such things." -- Grant Wiggins
