Getting to go on implementing standards. The authors present two assessment-based approaches to standards implementation--direct and indirect. Have you been told which standards to address in your classes? (Direct approach.) Then you'll want to know the four steps you should follow to organize your content, plan the types of assessments to use, organize your grade book, and redesign your report card. Maybe you haven't been told which standards to address, but you want to help your students using standards. (Indirect approach.) Where do you begin? By thinking about external tests and performance tasks and portfolios. This book will tell you how. Written for education employees at all levels, preschool through graduate studies.
