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. Teachers can choose from these techniques, try them out in the classroom, and modify them to meet their specific needs.

Educational achievement carries more importance than ever in the 21st century. According to academic research, teacher quality plays the most vital role in raising achievement among all K¿12 students, so improving teacher quality will lead to both greater student outcomes and greater prosperity for individuals and the whole of society. The Handbook for Embedded Formative Assessment makes the case that incorporating formative assessment into daily classroom practice raises teacher quality and enhances student learning to help all parties meet the evolving demands of society. As a companion to Embedded Formative Assessment, Second Edition (Wiliam, 2018), this book has one main purpose: to help teachers develop the practice of formative assessment in classrooms by providing tried-and-tested classroom formative assessment techniques and giving evidence that shows how these techniques positively impact student achievement. Grades K¿12 teachers can choose from these techniques, try them out in the classroom, and modify them to meet their specific needs. However, The Handbook for Embedded Formative Assessment can also act as a stand-alone book, sharing highlights from Embedded Formative Assessment as necessary before leading straight to the how-tos of classroom formative assessment.

Foundations of Science Literacy

Focusing on the Head Start community, "Foundations of Science Literacy" (FSL) is a credit-bearing professional development course that directly addresses the achievement gap in early science education.

The need for a scientifically-literate American population has gained great prominence on the educational landscape of priorities over the past decade; young children will be increasingly exposed to the STEM fields and encouraged to excel in these areas. Professional development is key to assuring that early childhood teachers provide children with cognitively-challenging early learning experiences. Focusing on the Head Start community, "Foundations of Science Literacy" (FSL) is a credit-bearing professional development course that directly addresses the achievement gap in early science education. The program not only addresses an urgent need, it also integrates the resources, structure, and support that preschool teachers need to improve early science learning and teaching. First, based on data from an efficacy study nearing completion, the authors assess whether "FSL without" embedded formative assessments leads to gains in preschool children. Second, drawing on insights from a new development project, the authors describe how instruction-embedded formative assessment can be used to "strengthen" and "clarify" the relation between gains in teacher pedagogical content knowledge and gains in children's scientific thinking. For the efficacy study, FSL was implemented in the greater New York City area and the population included preschool teachers and a sample of children in their classrooms using a randomized controlled trial (RCT) design. The authors highlight a promising approach to learning from mixed (summative) results using formative assessment to provide more nuanced information about children's learning over time and to allow teachers to tailor instruction so that it is more effective.

The Handbook of Formative Assessment in the Disciplines meaningfully addresses current developments in the field, offering a unique and timely focus on domain dependency. Building from an updated definition of formative assessment, the book covers the integration of measurement principles into practice; the operationalization of formative assessment within specific domains, beyond generic strategies; evolving research directions including student involvement and self-regulation; and new approaches to the challenges of incorporating formative assessment training into pre-service and in-service educator training. As supporters of large-scale testing programs increasingly consider the potential of formative assessments to improve teaching and learning, this handbook advances the subject through novel frameworks, intersections of theory, research, and practice, and attention to discernible disciplines. Written for instructors, graduate students, researchers, and policymakers, each chapter provides expert perspectives on the procedures and evaluations that enable teachers to adapt teaching and learning in-process toward student achievement.

Formative assessment has recently become a focus of renewed research as state and federal policy-makers realize that summative assessments have reached a point of diminishing returns as a tool for increasing student achievement. Consequently, supporters of large-scale testing programs are now beginning to consider the potential of formative assessments to improve student achievement. The mission of this handbook is to comprehensively profile this burgeoning field of study. Written by leading international scholars and practitioners, each chapter includes a discussion of key issues that dominate formative assessment policy and practice today, as well as those that are likely to affect research and practice in the coming years. Key features include: Comprehensive – nineteen chapters cover all aspects of formative assessment including classroom assessment, large-scale applications, technological applications, applications for special needs students, K-12 and post-secondary applications, psychometric considerations, case studies, and discussion of alternative assessment formats such as portfolios and performance assessments. Integrative – thoughtful attention is given to the integration of large-scale and classroom assessments. Practical – provides practical guidance on how to conduct formative assessments that generate credible information to guide instruction. Global – provides perspectives from leading international scholars and practitioners whose expertise spans diverse settings, student populations, and educational systems. Accessible Style – although grounded in the latest research, the book’s style and tone has been carefully crafted to make it accessible to both the textbook and professional markets. It will also be a critical reference book for researchers in teacher preparation, educational administration, and educational policy studies.

Transforming Writing is a two-year action research project which aims to develop a model for the teaching and learning of writing that more fully incorporates a focus on embedded formative assessment. In the first year of the project, the 12 participating schools developed a model of writing underpinned by Talk for Writing, an approach developed by Pie Corbett and Julia Strong. This interim report evaluates to what extent the model of writing developed by the teachers during the first year of research impacts on children's writing in terms of attainment, confidence and engagement. The evidence so far suggests that the focused use of formative assessment by teachers with children and by children with peers can make a major difference to children's writing progress in terms of attainment, engagement and confidence. This report identifies some of the successful classroom approaches to embedded formative assessment in writing teachers developed in the first year of the research project. The report suggests that during Transforming Writing research, teachers became evaluators and activators in the sense that Hattie (2012) proposes. Teacher interviews and reflections reveal that teachers were evaluating the effect their teaching had on the children's learning then using the powerful feedback that formative assessment provided to rapidly respond and adjust teaching of writing. Teachers saw their key role as evaluating their effect on children's learning of writing and then responding by implementing deliberate and focused interventions. Appended are: (1) Glossary; (2) Talk for Writing--what is it?; and (3) Table to show connections between the developing practice and findings of participating teachers on the Transforming Writing project in Phase 1 of the research project and the research of John Hattie. (Contains 21 figures and 14 footnotes.) [Funding for this paper was provided by Esmee Fairbairn Foundation.].

This book offers tested practices for successful design, implementation and teaching of blended and online courses in French and cultural studies. Founded on recent research, it promotes a contextualized, accessible environment through increased online access to authentic materials, face-to-face creative interaction, and embedded formative assessment. Each chapter focuses on major pedagogical issues associated with teaching blended and online courses, including instructional design, teaching tools adapted to a media-rich learning environment, and formative evaluation techniques through rubric-based assessment, self-evaluation and peer interaction. The book will appeal to humanities faculty and teaching assistants who plan the transition from the traditional classroom environment to blended and online teaching. The examples provided throughout clearly indicate that a good combination of proven pedagogies and technology-supported strategies will greatly enhance the quality of students’ learning through the acquisition of advanced linguistic skills and cultural competence in preparation for bilingual career certification, work and study abroad, and will lead to a deeper understanding of blended and online teaching and the future use of technology in higher education. Designed for use in small and large undergraduate courses in colleges and universities around the world, the book will be a major asset to any library collection looking to expand its humanities and education collections and reference sections.

Transforming Writing was a two-year action research project, sponsored by the Esmě Fairbairn Foundation, which developed a model for the teaching and learning of writing that embedded formative assessment. This report evaluates to what extent the model of writing developed by the teachers during the research period impacted on children's writing in terms of attainment, confidence and engagement. It also evaluates the effectiveness of a training model to spread the approaches to other teachers within the participating school, which was developed in the second year. The evidence suggests that the focused use of formative assessment by teachers with children and by children with peers can make a major difference to children's writing progress in terms of attainment, engagement and confidence. It also suggests that the model of training effectively supports dissemination of Transforming Writing approaches to other teachers. The following are appended: (1) Glossary; (2) Explanation of the 12 classroom approaches; (3) Control group--additional charts; and (4) Impact on children's confidence and engagement--additional charts.
