New book on assessment

Just what is "formative" assessment? How is formative assessment designed? How are grades assigned using this type of assessment? Answers to these questions and more can be found in Robert Marzano's new book, Formative assessment & standards-based grading. Marzano explains how to design and interpret three different types of formative assessments, how to track student progress, and how to assign meaningful grades. Examples of teachers applying formative assessment in their classrooms are detailed.
