Educational achievement carries more importance than ever in the 21st century. Teacher quality plays a vital role in raising achievement among K-12 students, and improving teacher quality will lead to both greater student outcomes and greater prosperity for individuals and the whole of society. If we are to maintain our status as one of the world's leading economies and secure our economic futures, and if we want our students to thrive in the impossibly complex, unpredictable world of the 21st century, we must concentrate on increasing educational achievement by increasing the quality of the teachers in our schools. As with the first edition, Embedded Formative Assessment, Second Edition makes the case for the important role of formative assessment in increasing teacher quality and student learning. Author Dylan Wiliam has added over 30 percent new content to this second edition, updating the vast body of research presented in the book's first edition, published in 2011, and including both new and tried-and-tested classroom formative assessment techniques along with evidence that shows how these techniques positively impact student achievement. Teachers can choose from these techniques, try them out in the classroom, and modify them to meet their specific needs.

Educational achievement carries more importance than ever in the 21st century. According to academic research, teacher quality plays the most vital role in raising achievement among all K¿12 students, so improving teacher quality will lead to both greater student outcomes and greater prosperity for individuals and the whole of society. The Handbook for Embedded Formative Assessment makes the case that incorporating formative assessment into daily classroom practice raises teacher quality and enhances student learning to help all parties meet the evolving demands of society. As a companion to Embedded Formative Assessment, Second Edition (Wiliam, 2018), this book has one main purpose: to help teachers develop the practice of formative assessment in classrooms by providing tried-and-tested classroom formative assessment techniques and giving evidence that shows how these techniques positively impact student achievement. Grades K¿12 teachers can choose from these techniques, try them out in the classroom, and modify them to meet their specific needs. However, The Handbook for Embedded Formative Assessment can also act as a stand-alone book, sharing highlights from Embedded Formative Assessment as necessary before leading straight to the how-tos of classroom formative assessment.

This book examines the history of formative assessment in the US and explores its potential for changing the landscape of teaching and learning to meet the needs of twenty-first century learners. The author uses case studies to illuminate the complexity of teaching and the externally imposed and internally constructed contextual elements that affect assessment decision-making. In this book, Box argues effectively for a renewed vision for teacher professional development that centers around the needs of students in a knowledge economy. Finally, Box offers an overview of systemic changes that are needed in order for progressive teaching and relevant learning to take place.

The need for a scientifically-literate American population has gained great prominence on the educational landscape of priorities over the past decade; young children will be increasingly exposed to the STEM fields and encouraged to excel in these areas. Professional development is key to assuring that early childhood teachers provide children with cognitively-challenging early learning experiences. Focusing on the Head Start community, "Foundations of Science Literacy" (FSL) is a credit-bearing professional development course that directly addresses the achievement gap in early science education. The program not only addresses an urgent need, it also integrates the resources, structure, and support that preschool teachers need to improve early science learning and teaching. First, based on data from an efficacy study nearing completion, the authors assess whether "FSL without" embedded formative assessments leads to gains in preschool children. Second, drawing on insights from a new development project, the authors describe how instruction-embedded formative assessment can be used to "strengthen" and "clarify" the relation between gains in teacher pedagogical content knowledge and gains in children's scientific thinking. For the efficacy study, FSL was implemented in the greater New York City area and the population included preschool teachers and a sample of children in their classrooms using a randomized controlled trial (RCT) design. The authors highlight a promising approach to learning from mixed (summative) results using formative assessment to provide more nuanced information about children's learning over time and to allow teachers to tailor instruction so that it is more effective.

Formative assessment has recently become a focus of renewed research as state and federal policy-makers realize that summative assessments have reached a point of diminishing returns as a tool for increasing student achievement. Consequently, supporters of large-scale testing programs are now beginning to consider the potential of formative assessments to improve student achievement. The mission of this handbook is to comprehensively profile this burgeoning field of study. Written by leading international scholars and practitioners, each chapter includes a discussion of key issues that dominate formative assessment policy and practice today, as well as those that are likely to affect research and practice in the coming years. Key features include: Comprehensive – nineteen chapters cover all aspects of formative assessment including classroom assessment, large-scale applications, technological applications, applications for special needs students, K-12 and post-secondary applications, psychometric considerations, case studies, and discussion of alternative assessment formats such as portfolios and performance assessments. Integrative – thoughtful attention is given to the integration of large-scale and classroom assessments. Practical – provides practical guidance on how to conduct formative assessments that generate credible information to guide instruction. Global – provides perspectives from leading international scholars and practitioners whose expertise spans diverse settings, student populations, and educational systems. Accessible Style – although grounded in the latest research, the book’s style and tone has been carefully crafted to make it accessible to both the textbook and professional markets. It will also be a critical reference book for researchers in teacher preparation, educational administration, and educational policy studies.

This new general elementary methods book offers a balanced presentation of skills, inquiry, and social approaches to teaching, structured around the concept of instructing for understanding. The authors stress that the truly effective teacher not only has knowledge of teaching strategies but also understands the importance of asking and answering such questions as: What learner characteristics affect the success of this strategy? What contextual factors will influence its outcome? What philosophical/ethical stance does it represent? This book includes coverage that reflects a “backward design” structure and consideration of student characteristics first; then, identification of complex tasks and assessment; and finally, daily instructional planning. It emphasizes authentic assessment and the importance of considering assessment when planning instruction. For professionals in the field of teaching grades K-12.
