Overview

INFORMative Assessment: Formative Assessment Practices to Improve Mathematics Achievement, Middle and High School by Jeane M. Joyner, George W. Bright

INFORMative Assessment should be intertwined with instruction. As we teach, we assess; and as we assess, we teach. With this in mind, INFORMative Assessment goes inside more than 30 classrooms to take "A Closer Look" at how to: create learning targets from instructional standards; design and use probing questions, intentional listening, and follow-up tasks to reveal students' thinking; use mathematically rich tasks to gather evidence about students' thinking; identify students' "logic" that leads to correct, incomplete, or incorrect responses; provide actionable feedback to students; and plan with colleagues to implement INFORMative Assessment in instruction. More than 45 reflections support teachers in confidently carrying out actions in their own classrooms. Each chapter includes connections to standards, specifically the Common Core, and a place for you to record notes about your use of INFORMative Assessment-the changes in your thinking, your questions, your frustrations, and, most importantly, your successes!
