Standards to Support Classroom Assessment

Classroom Assessment Standards for PreK-12 Teachers are available in English as an e-book from Amazon Kindle for $3.75! You do not have to have a Kindle since you can download the free Kindle App from Amazon.

The Classroom Assessment Standards for PreK-12 Teachers provide classroom teachers in pre-kindergarten through high school with research-based principles and guidelines for effective assessment of student learning. These standards do not apply to state or district mandated tests.

"The intended audience include the following: pre-service and in-service classroom teachers; their supervisors or administrators; staff developers; and faculty in teacher preparation programs and colleges of education. This is an excellent resource for those engaged in professional learning communities who desire to enhance their teaching practice as well as for administrators charged with evaluating that practice. The principles and guidelines contained in this book offer sound research-based practices designed to increase effective classroom instruction."(From the Introduction)
