From the Publisher"[T]hese two experienced Hawaii librarians offer terrific ideas at all grade levels for assessing (formatively) and evaluating (summatively) both our work and that of our students. After reviewing the topic of assessment, the authors look at library media centers to determine where and how students should be assessed and then examine assessment tools and explain a wide array of effective graphic organizers. In a flashback to excellent outcome-based learning strategies (renamed backward planning), they detail units for elementary, middle, and high schools using varied assessments, most extensively student portfolios….While newer teacher-librarians may learn some of these strategies in library school, veterans should be excited at possibilities that they may never have considered, thus providing much-needed injections of clear, accessible, exciting instruction into their lives as well as those of their students"
School Library Journal
"The question now is: How do we assess student learing in the context of the school media center? This is the first book to answer this question. K-12 media specialists will find this book invaluable in understanding and implementing assessment of student learning and achievement. Each chapter begins with an overview and key questions that are answered in the reading, and ends with an extensive list of print and Internet references….Recommended."
