"If we want our students to thrive in the complex, unpredictable world of the 21st century, we must concentrate on increasing educational achievement by increasing the quality of the teachers in our schools. Embedded Formative Assessment faces this challenge head-on by making a case for the important role of formative assessment as a process, not a tool, in increasing teacher quality and thus student learning. Author Dylan Wiliam provides over fifty practical techniques for classroom formative assessment, emphasizes the instructional side of the process, [and] explores in-depth the use of classroom questioning, learning intentions and success criteria, feedback, collaborative and cooperative learning, and self-regulated learning to engineer effective learning environments"--The back cover.
