In this highly engaging resource, internationally respected expert Page Keeley shares 50 new techniques to pinpoint student understanding before, during, and after instruction. In addition to promoting best practices in the classroom, the techniques shared here support learning and link instruction to the Next Generation Science Standards. These flexible assessments can be used with any science curriculum, along with


  • Practical strategies for  using the techniques throughout the instruction cycle
  • Considerations for implementation and suggestions for modification
  • An explanation of how each technique promotes learning
  • Examples of how the techniques can be used in different content areas


An expert in the field of K-12 science education, Page Keeley is the former president of the National Science Teachers Association, a current Board Member of the National Science Education Leadership Association, and has seventeen best-selling books. 

"Science Formative Assessment, Volume 2 contains a wealth of tools that encourage students to engage in practices such as scientific argumentation and discourse. By emphasizing the alignment of the FACT with Science and Engineering Practices, Keeley provides multiple ways for teachers to monitor more than the disciplinary core ideas being taught."

"Teachers everywhere are spending a lot of time and energy looking for ways to increase student achievement. Well, the answer is not a big secret, nor is it expensive. Fortunately, Page Keeley has an answer. Improved performance lies in using formative assessments as an integral aspect of a lesson. In this book, Keeley shows how 50 formative assessments can lead to greater student success in science."
