Summary

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. Drawing from his own and others' extensive research, the author provides comprehensive answers to questions such as these:
  • What are the characteristics of an effective assessment program?
  • How can educators use national and state standards documents as a basis for creating a comprehensive, topic-based assessment system?
  • What types of assessment items and tasks are best suited to measuring student progress in mastering information, mental procedures, and psychomotor procedures?
  • Why does the traditional point system used for scoring often lead to incorrect conclusions about a student’s actual knowledge?
  • What types of scoring and final grading systems provide the most accurate portrayal of a student’s progress along a continuum of learning?
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.
