Tests don?t just test, they teach. In this book, Grant Wiggins outlines the design standards for performance–based assessments that promise students, no matter what their ability, clear and worthy performance targets, useful feedback, coaching, and the opportunity to progress toward excellence.

As practical as it is provocative, Educative Assessment furnishes the information needed to design performance–based assessments, craft performance tasks that meet rigorous educational standards, score assessments fairly, and structure and judge student portfolios. It also shows how performance assessment can be used to improve curriculum and instruction, grading and reporting as well as teacher accountability.

\x09In addition, the book includes numerous design templates and flowcharts, strategies of design and troubleshooting, and myriad examples of assessment tasks and scoring rubrics that Wiggins developed and repeatedly refined using feedback from clients in schools, districts, and state department of education.

Following the recommendations for educative assessment mapped out in this book can provide students with authentic tasks that simulate or replicate adult tasks and offer teachers and students useful feedback that can generate stellar classroom performance.
