Summary

This book details how teachers can encourage students to assess their own academic progress on a daily basis and develop critical thinking and study skills in the process. It explores how students can become reflective and self-regulated learners - and what it can mean to teachers to become reflective models of life- long learning.

The authors present the concept of authentic assessment, in which students actively evaluate their own learning in ways that are meaningful (or authentic) to their educational experience. Based on a pilot project in Michigan schools, the authors discuss the student portfolio of work as an assessment vehicle as well as a bridge between school and home.

The text includes ideas and suggestions for activities that provide both learning and assessment opportunities.
