Rezension: Dirksen, a former middle school math teacher, has authored a helpful text for pre-service and first-year teachers. The focus is primarily on formative assessments, with two chapters addressing the purpose of formative assessments and how to ensure that they are reliable and valid. The author states that she tries to never assume that just because she is teaching students are learning, which supports the need for formative assessments. Dirksen makes connections to backward design, response to intervention, common core, and pre-assessments. Six chapters (e.g., games, graphic organizers, and writing) address specific strategies for formative assessments. In addition, Dirksen includes an excellent chapter on data collection and analysis, which is critical for understanding student learning...Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduate and professional collections. CHOICE Debra Dirksen states that her purpose in writing Student Assessment is to give teachers specific tools they can use to support student learning. She ably accomplishes this goal. The book starts with a very understandable description of what formative assessment is and why it is important to be used in unit planning. The book is loaded with many ideas for using formative assessment not only in the unit introduction but throughout the unit to learn what knowledge the students already have. Time is a crucial factor that teachers face with every lesson. Using the strategies presented in this book, teachers can teach what the students need and not repeat the knowledge that they already have. This is vitally important when curriculum is packed and time is limited. This book should be required reading for pre-service teachers and those in the field as well. -- Adele Hall, Ph.D., retired elementary school teacher, Rutland, Vermont The book flows very nicely. The tendency for many books on assessment is focusing on theory and little on how a teacher could implement formative assessment in the classroom to assist their students to become better learners. This book doesn't do that. Debra Dirksen has provided a current metaphor for faculty and teachers alike to grab and hang on to regarding a somewhat hard to understand process. -- Donald D. Tharp, Ph.D., School of Public Affairs, University of Colorado: Colorado Springs How about a 'reset' for the classroom: Instead of avoiding or even instilling the fear of failure, we embrace and teach students how to learn from failure? Assessment serves as the 'reset button' for any learner. Dr. Dirksen outlines specific, practical, and proven methods of a variety of assessments and tools that can be utilized to analyze and chart the best learning route for a student. In her easy-to-read style, she comprehensively covers all aspects and types of learner assessments, strategies, interventions, activities, and technologies. Student Assessment is a complete 'go-to' reference guide for every educator. -- Wes Leggett, Ph.D., professor of education, Drury University and Colorado Christian University
