Making Standards Useful in the Classroom - 08 edition

Making Standards Useful in the Classroom (ISBN10: 1416606483; ISBN13: 9781416606482)
ISBN13: 978-1416606482
ISBN10: 1416606483

Summary: Has the standards movement in the United States led to improved classroom instruction and effective assessment? In too many cases, the answer is no. As authors Robert J. Marzano and Mark W. Haystead explain, two major reasons account for this situation: state and national standards documents typically identify far more content than teachers can actually teach during a school year, and the standards are not written in a manner that supports effective instruction and a
ssessment.
In Making Standards Useful in the Classroom, Marzano and Haystead present a way to convert standards documents into a format that teachers can actually use to guide instruction and to create meaningful formative assessments. In Part I of this practical guide, teachers, administrators, and curriculum specialists will find answers to questions such as these:
  • What are the steps to follow in unpacking and rewriting standards so they are useful for classroom teachers?
  • What is a measurement topic and what kind of content should it include?
  • How can measurement topics be organized into a coherent system for learning and assessment?
  • Why is averaging a flawed method for calculating grades?
  • What is the best way to assess learning and determine a grade that accurately represents students' growth in knowledge and skill?
Part II of the book consists of scoring scales with sample measurement topics for language arts, math, science, and social studies for kindergarten through 8th grade, and sample measurement topics for life skills for kindergarten through 12th grade. Using the samples as a guide, districts and schools can create their own systems for translating standards into usefulcomponents of effective instruction and formative assessment that truly drive student learning.
