Formative Assessment in the Disciplines: Framing a Continuum of Professional Learning
by Margaret Heritage and Caroline Wiley

The authors offer a  compelling look at the connections between the formative assessment process, ambitious teaching, and disciplinary knowledge. Using real-life examples, they lead the reader through a clear and accessible professional learning framework that will deepen every educator's understanding of the knowledge and skills necessary to implement discipline-based formative assessment practices to improve teacher efficacy and student achievement.
