Revolutionize Assessment: Empower Students, Inspire Learning

About the eBook

Confront the emerging assessment crisis in American education

Rick Stiggins details profound changes in the mission of our schools that requires a bold new vision of excellence in assessment in those schools. He combines decades of experience with international research to define a vision that uses assessment to supercharge student learning, not merely measure it—to support student growth, not merely hold schools accountable for it.Revolutionize Assessment

  • Begins with a unique analysis from the student’s point of view of the motivational psychology of being evaluated in the classroom
  • Offers strategies for engaging students in self-assessment in ways that maximize their engagement and confidences as they learn
  • Details the long-missing conditions of classroom assessment literacy that must be in place in local schools for Rick’s vision to become reality
  • Reveals how gains in student achievement can narrow achievement gaps when teachers are given the tools needed to use "assessment for learning"


"Noted authority Rick Stiggins offers an important ′wake up call′ as he documents how our nation has lost its way on the assessment road, and offers a hopeful prescription for how we can reclaim the promise of assessments that truly support meaningful learning."
Jay McTighe, Co-author of the Understanding by Design® series

"I want this book in the hands of every teacher and school leader in American Schools."
—Sharon Robinson, Executive Director of the Association of American Colleges of Teacher Education and of the Learning First Alliance
