Improve student achievement on daily assignments, unit assessments, and standardized tests!

Customizing instructional approaches to a specific educational context and learners′ needs is a common challenge for educators. Geared for Grades 6–12, this resource defines performance-based assessments (PBAs) and illustrates how using PBAs can help teachers target specific academic goals for students and foster positive, productive, and practical learning experiences.

Using easy-to-understand terms, the book leads educators through an assessment process that is fully integrated with the daily curriculum and that can result in significantly improved student performance. The author provides a template for recording assessment data, demonstrates how to create rubrics for teacher/student use, and offers standards-based examples featuring classroom teachers′ insights. Readers will discover how to implement:

  • Preassessments to collect baseline data
  • Formative assessments that yield progress-monitoring data
  • Summative assessments for gathering data that is easy to use

Complete with checklists, frequently asked questions, graphic organizers, activities, and additional resources, Developing Performance-Based Assessments, Grades 6–12 is an ideal tool for engaging students in the learning process.
