Educational achievement carries more importance than ever in the 21st century. Teacher quality plays a vital role in raising achievement among K-12 students, and improving teacher quality will lead to both greater student outcomes and greater prosperity for individuals and the whole of society. If we are to maintain our status as one of the world's leading economies and secure our economic futures, and if we want our students to thrive in the impossibly complex, unpredictable world of the 21st century, we must concentrate on increasing educational achievement by increasing the quality of the teachers in our schools. As with the first edition, Embedded Formative Assessment, Second Edition makes the case for the important role of formative assessment in increasing teacher quality and student learning. Author Dylan Wiliam has added over 30 percent new content to this second edition, updating the vast body of research presented in the book's first edition, published in 2011, and including both new and tried-and-tested classroom formative assessment techniques along with evidence that shows how these techniques positively impact student achievement.

A teacher presents a lesson, and at the end asks students if they understand the material. The students nod and say they get it. Later, the teacher is dismayed when many of the students fail a test on the material. Why aren’t students getting it? And, just as important, why didn’t the teacher recognize the problem? In Checking for Understanding, Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey show how to increase students’ understanding with the help of creative formative assessments. When used regularly, formative assessments enable every teacher to determine what students know and what they still need to learn. Fisher and Frey explore a variety of engaging activities that check for and increase understanding, including interactive writing, portfolios, multimedia presentations, audience response systems, and much more. This new 2nd edition of Checking for Understanding has been updated to reflect the latest thinking in formative assessment and to show how the concepts apply in the context of Fisher and Frey’s work on gradual release of responsibility, guided instruction, formative assessment systems, data analysis, and quality instruction. Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey are the creators of the Framework for Intentional and Targeted (FIT) Teaching™. They are also the authors of numerous ASCD books, including The Formative Assessment Action Plan: Practical Steps to More Successful Teaching and Learning and the best-selling Enhancing RTI: How to Ensure Success with Effective Classroom Instruction and Intervention.

What if teachers could dramatically reduce the amount of time they spend reviewing and correcting student work and actually see better results in terms of student learning? That’s the goal of Glen Pearsall, who shares dozens of classroom-tested strategies that lessen teachers’ workload while increasing students’ class participation and improving their understanding. Readers will learn how to • Refine their classroom questioning techniques to continually check students’ progress and provide instant feedback; • Encourage students to internalize learning goals so they better understand what is expected of them; • Use fast, formative assessment strategies to check and correct during class time; • Modify traditional summative-testing strategies to monitor student progress in a formative way; • Speed up the correction process via student self-proofing, representative sampling, and helpful technology tools; and • Engage students in becoming actively involved in assessing their own work. Drawing from his own experience as a teacher and coach, Pearsall offers practical, real-world advice in the form of techniques that are both effective and sustainable in the everyday classroom. The result is smarter assessment—for both teachers and students.
