By combining science inquiry and continuous assessment, you will not only catalyze meaningful changes in your students' thinking and learning, but also reflect on and enhance your own approach to teaching.
The authors provide a rationale and practical tools for weaving continuous assessment and instruction in science into the fabric of learning. Teachers who use the methods in the book will know what and how students are learning every day and gain insights into how to best facilitate learning in their classrooms. -- From the Foreword by Susan Mundry, Project Director
Assessing what students know and are able to do is a major component of standards-based education and is one of the hottest topics on the educational scene. This book addresses assessment in a unique way and provides an excellent opportunity for readers to view and understand formative assessment as equal to summative assessment. -- Kathy DiRanna, Statewide Director
This wonderful 'how-to' book offers new approaches for assessing inquiry-based teaching and learning. This book is a must for the science educator's library. -- National Science Teachers Association NSTA Recommends
