Book Summary:

This book focuses where assessment has greatest relevance—the classroom. A great deal of research related to assessment is focused on ‘the testing industry’, high-stakes language proficiency testing, and related analytical and statistical reports that are far removed from teachers’ and students’ experiences in the classroom. Recently, more attention has been paid to assessment in language classrooms and the many challenges that teachers face in both measuring and promoting student learning. This book contributes to the body of knowledge related to teacher assessment competence, and how it is manifested in the decisions they make about assessment procedures and instruments in their classes. Focused on specific challenges related to classroom assessment, each chapter reports on particular assessment issues faced by teachers, their choices regarding such issues, and the consequences (actual or anticipated) of their decision-making. This book will interest the thousands of teachers globally dealing with the numerous challenges associated with effective classroom assessment in language learning. This collection of teacher voices, stories, and investigations provides possible solutions to such challenges, and will serve to promote assessment literacy in the language teaching profession.

Book Summary:

Learning English as a foreign language in any formal education context requires opportunities for learners and teachers to give and receive feedback on the teaching learning process as it is happening. These opportunities could be created via various in-class activities specifically designed for this purpose. Teachers who create and use these diagnostic opportunities effectively detect what learners need in a timely fashion, and provide remedial teaching in the right time and mode, so that chances can be created for learners to improve their learning. There is no one universally accepted way of how to do this, however, with various approaches for collecting, analyzing and reviewing data for this purpose. This book encapsulates the unbreakable relationship between teaching, learning and assessment through a range of articles which scrutinize assessment from a wide spectrum, ranging from the role of assessment in language learning to ELT teacher assessment literacy, from the use of technology in classroom-based assessment to practicing teachers’ reflections on their teacher classroom action research, and from the role of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) to empirical data analysis.

Book Summary:

Der Band greift die internationale und nationale Diskussion um die Qualität von Unterricht für den Bereich der Grundschule auf und präsentiert den aktuellen Forschungsstand zur Entwicklung, Erfassung und Bewertung der Qualität von Grundschulunterricht. Aus der Perspektive verschiedener fachlicher Disziplinen - Erziehungswissenschaft, Psychologie, Didaktik der Mathematik, Didaktik des Sachunterrichts, Sprachendidaktik - werden normativ-theoretische Überlegungen sowie empirische Ergebnisse zu Bildungsstandards und deren Überprüfung, zur Entwicklung von Grundschulunterricht, zur Erfassung seiner Wirkungen und zu individuellen wie auch strukturellen Lernbedingungen dargestellt. Auch methodische Aspekte der Erfassung von Unterrichtsqualität werden - bezogen auf die Grundschule - diskutiert. Die Qualität von Grundschulunterricht kann nur gesichert werden, wenn Grundschullehrkräfte über entsprechende Kompetenzen verfügen. Im Band werden deshalb auch Aspekte der Begründung, Entwicklung und Erfassung von Lehrerkompetenzen sowie die Wirkung professioneller Kompetenz auf Unterricht und Lernerfolge thematisiert.

Book Summary:

"This handbook addresses and sorts out many of the complex issues related to teacher assessment and teacher quality, and the connections between the two. This is no small task, given the numerous ways and time points at which teacher quality is assessed, the multitude of stakeholders with a vested interest in assessment processes and assessment products, the competing policy and political agendas to which various assessments of teachers and teaching are attached, and ongoing controversies about what teacher quality means and why it is important. One of the strengths of this handbook is that it does not shy away from or attempt to reduce the messiness of these issues by offering a simplified notion of assessment and quality. —From the Foreword by Marilyn Cochran-Smith Praise for Teacher Assessment and the Quest for Teacher Quality "With its stellar lineup of authors, this book tackles with impressive insight the most fundamental and urgent problem facing educators today. Because teaching is the common pathway through which all educational improvements reach the students, nothing is more important than learning to assess its quality." —James Hiebert, Robert J. Barkley Professor of Education, University of Delaware "Improvement of human capital is an urgent priority for education reform. Kennedy and her colleagues make an important contribution by presenting a variety of productive uses of assessment to improve teacher qualities and thereby teacher quality." —Jody Spiro, Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, New York University "I am deeply encouraged by Teacher Assessment and the Quest for Teacher Quality as it gives a fresh voice to the critical conversation of the role of assessments in measuring teacher quality. This handbook, expertly edited by Mary Kennedy, offers a considered analysis with a keen focus on student learning." —Joyce C. Loveless, NBCT, executive director, Program Access and Equity, National Board for Professional Teaching Standards "Every teacher, administrator, and school board member will benefit greatly from reading this thought-provoking book to truly understand and appreciate the intriguing, multi-dimensional relationship between teacher assessment and teacher quality." —Jack Umstatter, best-selling author, Brain Games!

Book Summary:

Given the academic benefits of assessment-driven teaching, and the growing accountability context of educational systems around the world, there is a rapidly developing need to educate teachers in effectively using assessments to promote, monitor, and report on student learning. However, assessment has historically been a neglected area in teacher education programmes, and empirical research has consistently shown assessment as an area of challenge for many teachers. While there is an increased focus across teacher education and professional literature on enhancing the assessment capacity of educators, there remains little empirical research on innovative and data-based strategies to effectively achieve this goal. The purpose of this text is to consolidate existing research on assessment education and to provoke innovative and effective approaches to educating teachers and teachers-in-training about assessment. Given the dearth of relevant research, this text also considers the matter of retention and extension of initial assessment learning into teaching careers. Combined, the articles in this text provide a foundation for novel thinking about developing teachers’ assessment capacity from pre-service to in-service contexts. This book was originally published as a special issue of Assessment in Education.

Book Summary:

-Tailor assessments to every topic, skill, and concept taught in physical education. -Help students make connections between concepts to enhance learning. -Meet a wide range of learning styles and teach to all intelligences, including linguistic, spatial, visual, and kinesthetic. -Incorporate learning into the assessment process by calling on various levels of thinking, such as recall, summary application, and evaluation. In today's physical education framework, the demands on your time and energy are great. Every second of class time is precious, so an efficient method of assessment that can plug into any lesson or unit being taught is a highly sought-after commodity. Loaded with assessment templates and sample units, the Physical Education Assessment Toolkit provides you with everything you need in order to simultaneously assess and teach students the lifelong value of physical education. Assessment templates form the basis of the Physical Education Assessment Toolkit. Presented in a concise, user-friendly format, this comprehensive package contains the following features: -Bound-in CD-ROM--PDFs of each reproducible are provided for duplication, including posters that can be printed on letter-sized or larger paper in color or in black and white. -Reproducible templates--Generic forms may be completed easily to address the specific topic, concept, or skill at hand, allowing you to tailor assessments to your students' needs and abilities. -Sample units--Designed using the backward design model of curriculum development, three complete units show how to transform blank reproducibles into highly practical assessment tools. Each chapter includes lesson plans with model reproducibles for the following categories: written assessment, self-assessment, peer assessment, and application or performance assessment. Within each of these categories, you'll receive guidance on implementing and creating more meaningful assessments. Templates may be used to meet a variety of student learning styles, providing opportunities for assessing through rubrics, journal-writing assignments, self-assessments, and skill-tracking assessments across the cognitive, affective, and psychomotor realms. Rather than stealing valuable classroom time, the template approach actually enables teachers to use assessment to reinforce and extend learning in a systematic way. The Physical Education Assessment Toolkit is the one resource that physical educators will turn to anytime they need to do an assessment, no matter what unit or lesson is being taught. This book and CD-ROM package contains the ready-made, pilot-tested materials needed for effective assessments of students, leaving teachers to focus on what they do best--teach.
