Testing expert W. James Popham cuts through the jargon and the hype to provide the definitive nuts-and-bolts introduction to formative assessment, a process with the power to completely transform teaching and learning.

Popham explains the research supporting formative assessment’s effectiveness and why familiarity with this research is the key to preserving both teacher sanity and district funds. He offers step-by-step guidance on how to build frameworks for formative assessment and how to carry out each of the process’s four levels:

  1. Teachers’ instructional adjustments
  2. Students’ learning tactic adjustments
  3. A classroom climate shift
  4. Schoolwide implementation

This book is an ideal resource for educators who are considering formative assessment, are curious about why their school system is embracing formative assessment, or are wondering why the “formative assessments” they’re using now aren’t producing the intended results. Transformative Assessment clarifies once and for all what formative assessment is and isn’t, what it can do and what it can’t, and how to use it to promote better teaching and better learning.
