Kim Meldrum provides readers with a strong understanding of the role that technology as a tool for learning must play in the education of today’s students. She very clearly explains the three types of assessment that richly inform teacher practice—assessment as learning, assessment for learning and assessment of learning. This book includes practical examples of how students can creatively demonstrate their learning. Detailed assessment information is provided with each example. After reading this book, teachers will gain the skills they need to effectively assess student work, at the same time building a repertoire of ideas that allow students to demonstrate their learning in different, creative and authentic ways. It’s the best of both worlds – learn to make student thinking visible and easily gather rich assessment information!
