A Pig Don't Get Fatter The More You Weigh It: Classroom Assessments That Work By Phyllis Jones, Judy F. Carr & Rosemarie L. Ataya

Product Description


No matter how many times you weigh a pig, all you learn is how much it weighs. If you want to learn something else, you need a different assessment. This sensible book demonstrates the power of classroom assessments to improve both teaching and learning. In clear, straightforward language, the authors explain how well-constructed assessments provide data that is essential to the development of learning opportunities for all students, regardless of their backgrounds. This is an insightful overview of a subject that has, until now, generated far more heat than light. With contributions from teachers and teacher educators, this pragmatic book features: A highly readable overview of a subject that is often over-complicated. Concise chapters, illustrated with vignettes from real life in the classroom. Directions for integrating assessment results, curriculum expectations, and individual students’ learning needs. Alternative approaches that have been proven to be useful in assessing the needs of a wide range of students. Examples of successful collaborations among school staff, based on assessment results, in creating cultures that support teachers and learners..
