Each book focuses on practical ways for teachers to involve students in their own assessment by using criteria and goal setting in the classroom. The authors also provide different scenarios that outline how students can demonstrate their learning to others, take active roles in conferences with parents, and become involved in creating portfolios and preparing collections of evidence. All books include classroom ideas, cross-curricular examples, responses to commonly asked questions, and reproducibles.
