Confront the emerging assessment crisis in American education

  • 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

In The Press

"In this concise, compelling, and readable book, Rick Stiggins explains clearly the extraordinary damage that has been done to America's youth by the belief that standardized testing is the only, or even the best, way to find out what students have learned. He also shows how more appropriate assessment, in which learners play a leading role, has the power to transform American education. Anyone interested in what is wrong with education in America today—and what we can do about it—should read this book."
