Tools for Two Masters: Classroom Assessment and School System Assessment
by Larry E. Suter — 2004
As a set, these chapters represent various attempts to develop guidance for teachers on how to better integrate curriculum and assessment practices to improve student learning. Two are based on broad views of the organization of curriculum and assessment (Forster & Masters, Smithson & Porter) and three are based on micro studies of teachers (Black & Wiliam, Frederiksen & White, Wilson & Draney). I will first comment on how each chapter contributes a research basis for applying assessment methods to classroom-level instruction, and then I will provide summary comments on the set.
