Product Description

By Anne Collins

Today’s emphasis on standards and high stakes testing has made assessment, both formative and summative, a critical part of every class room. To help teachers better understand and effectively use assessment, this book draws from the numerous assessment resources published by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) in recent years. Each title in NCTM’s assessment series addresses a different area of expertise. By combining the information from NCTM’s various books, the authors have designed dynamic, relevant professional development sessions for teachers to build a better understanding of what constitutes a comprehensive assessment system.

The NCTM resources cited not only promote the need for the ongoing use of formative assessment but also provide the data teachers need to understand the intricacies of large-scale, summative assessments such as the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAE), the Trends in Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS), individual state assessment, and standardized tests. This highly practical, comprehensive guide combines NCTM’s wealth of knowledge from experts in the fields of formative and summative assessment with research-based data and offers a library for understanding both formative and summative assessment.

The book includes:
  • Three PLC Community Afternoon Sessions on Assessment
  • Seven Ongoing, Two-Hour Formative Assessment Sessions
  • Two-Day Professional Development Sessions
  • Two-Hour Stand-Alone Sessions
  • Case studies
  • Suggestion Discussion Topics
  • Rich and classroom-tested tasks
  • Research cited in research sections

Using Classroom Assessment to Improve Student Learning: Math Problems Aligned with NCTM and Common Core State StandardsLinking assessment to everday classroom instruction requires a shift in both thinking and practice. For many, the term assessment simply means grade. Using Classroom Assessment to Improve Student Learning shows how teachers can move away from using tests, letter or numerical grades, or passing or failing as evidence of student learning to creating a rich classroom environment that is conducive to effective formative assessment. $38.95
