Summary


Jean Moon and Linda Schulman offer practitioners a new approach to assessment-one that is comprehensive, practical, and interactive. Recognizing the process-oriented nature of alternative assessment, they contend that the more we "do" alternative assessment, the more we learn about it. Their book encourages and enhances that "doing" process.

Finding the Connections emphasizes the conceptual links among assessment, instruction, and curriculum, focusing on classroom practices in grades K-6. It provides a model for integrating assessment with instruction; ideas for communicating with parents, students, and administrators; and guided opportunities to practice and reflect upon the assessment process. By sharing their experiences, the authors also help readers develop their own assessment methods.

Classroom teachers, mathematics educators, mathematics specialists, curriculum developers, administrators, and other practitioners interested in the general field of assessment will find this book essential reading.
