'A unique blend of scholarly research-based principles of effective formative assessment with practical suggestions for use in the classroom.
The authors show how the essence of formative assessment is in teachers' responses to the substance students' understandings, with a focus on how teachers can use pedagogical strategies to move students forward toward important learning outcomes.
