Reviews

"The model presented in this book is the best one I know for approaching the difficult task of grading exceptional and struggling learners. It makes sense, and it honors principles of learning, instruction, and validity of measurement. Examples show how the model applies to a variety of struggling students. The book is clear and readable. I recommend it for teachers at all levels." -- Susan M. Brookhart, Education Consultant
"This new book represents a practical resource for all teachers and administrators whose goal is to provide appropriate and equitable assessment practices for students who may be at risk for academic failure. It is especially refreshing to see the way Lee Ann Jung and Thomas Guskey pay special attention to the fair treatment of English Language Learners included in this volume." -- Andrea Honigsfeld, Professorand Co-Authorof Collaboration and Co-Teaching
