Formative Assessment
Making It Happen in the Classroom

Second Edition


September 2021 | 176 pages | Corwin

Develop the knowledge and skills needed for successful formative assessment

Formative assessment is a process used by teachers and students to keep learning moving forward. In the 10 years since the first edition of Formative Assessment was published, the practice has become a mainstay in classrooms, but that does not mean that it is easy.

Education expert Margaret Heritage walks readers through every step of implementation and offers numerous examples that illustrate formative assessment practices across a range of subjects and grade levels. She explains how to articulate learning progressions, goals, and success criteria; select assessment strategies and provide quality feedback; engage students in self-assessment and self-management; and create an environment that values feedback as part of the learning process. Based on the latest research, this second edition addresses:

  • College and career readiness standards, Common Core State Standards, and Next Generation Science Standards
  • Equity and individual learning needs
  • Discipline-based and student-centered formative assessment
  • Social and emotional learning

Written for teachers and those who support them, this book will help all educators develop the skills necessary to get students on the path to success.
