    Book details

Use PBAs to design learning experiences that increase student engagement and achievement!

This book explains performance-based assessments (PBAs) in easy-to-understand terms and describes how to construct PBAs that measure learner performance effectively while allowing educators to align curriculum and instruction with students' needs. Using PBAs, teachers can engage students in the learning process, connect the learning to students' individual lives, and monitor learning outcomes. The author provides:

- detailed and clear examples of performance-based assessments

- tools for assessment and guidelines for creating and using rubrics

- checklists, frequently asked questions, graphic organizers, and activities to reinforce the content in each chapter.

“In an era where buzzwords like ‘assessment’ and ‘accountability’ are used every day in our school systems, a book like this is long overdue. The author clearly explains important terminology while providing easy-to-understand ways to engage in quality assessment in any elementary classroom.” (Jennifer Sinsel, Elementary Gifted Teacher 2008-07-11)"This book is very practical and useful to teachers trying to teach to all types of learners.” (Michael Putnam, Assistant Professor 2008-07-11)
