poster2Build the bridge from data collection to improved instruction
Assessment data can bury you or give you focused attention on how to recognize and reach every student. This book shows how to develop a common language for sharing all students’ progress with all teachers and leaders, and how to use ongoing assessment to inform instruction. Based on worldwide research of more than 500 educators, the book presents solutions organized by:

  • Assessment
  • Instruction
  • Leadership
  • Ownership

Included are numerous self-assessment tools, frameworks, graphics and case studies to support and guide implementation at the district and state levels. Improving education begins by understanding the needs and abilities of every student.

“Too often the debate about education sets up a false dichotomy between rigorous use of data on the one hand and teachers’ professionalism on the other. This book demonstrated triumphantly that when the two go together, students benefit.” – Sir Michael Barber, Founding Director of the US Education Delivery Institute and Author of Deliverology 101: A Field Guide For Educational Leaders
