Educational achievement carries more importance than ever in the 21st century. According to academic research, teacher quality plays the most vital role in raising achievement among all K¿12 students, so improving teacher quality will lead to both greater student outcomes and greater prosperity for individuals and the whole of society. The Handbook for Embedded Formative Assessment makes the case that incorporating formative assessment into daily classroom practice raises teacher quality and enhances student learning to help all parties meet the evolving demands of society. As a companion to Embedded Formative Assessment, Second Edition (Wiliam, 2018), this book has one main purpose: to help teachers develop the practice of formative assessment in classrooms by providing tried-and-tested classroom formative assessment techniques and giving evidence that shows how these techniques positively impact student achievement. Grades K¿12 teachers can choose from these techniques, try them out in the classroom, and modify them to meet their specific needs. However, The Handbook for Embedded Formative Assessment can also act as a stand-alone book, sharing highlights from Embedded Formative Assessment as necessary before leading straight to the how-tos of classroom formative assessment.

Formative assessment has recently become a focus of renewed research as state and federal policy-makers realize that summative assessments have reached a point of diminishing returns as a tool for increasing student achievement. Consequently, supporters of large-scale testing programs are now beginning to consider the potential of formative assessments to improve student achievement. The mission of this handbook is to comprehensively profile this burgeoning field of study. Written by leading international scholars and practitioners, each chapter includes a discussion of key issues that dominate formative assessment policy and practice today, as well as those that are likely to affect research and practice in the coming years. Key features include: Comprehensive – nineteen chapters cover all aspects of formative assessment including classroom assessment, large-scale applications, technological applications, applications for special needs students, K-12 and post-secondary applications, psychometric considerations, case studies, and discussion of alternative assessment formats such as portfolios and performance assessments. Integrative – thoughtful attention is given to the integration of large-scale and classroom assessments. Practical – provides practical guidance on how to conduct formative assessments that generate credible information to guide instruction. Global – provides perspectives from leading international scholars and practitioners whose expertise spans diverse settings, student populations, and educational systems. Accessible Style – although grounded in the latest research, the book’s style and tone has been carefully crafted to make it accessible to both the textbook and professional markets. It will also be a critical reference book for researchers in teacher preparation, educational administration, and educational policy studies.

Online and blended learning requires the reconstruction of instructor and learner roles, relations, and practices in many aspects. Assessment becomes an important issue in nontraditional learning environments. Assessment literacy, i.e., understanding assessment and assessment strategies, is critical for both instructors and students in creating online and blended environments that are effective for teaching and learning. Instructors need to identify and implement assessment strategies and methods appropriate to online or blended learning. This includes an understanding of the potential of a variety of technology tools for monitoring student learning and improving their teaching effectiveness. From the students’ perspective, good assessment practices can show them what is important to learn and how they should approach learning; hence, engaging them in goaloriented and selfregulatory cognitions and behaviors. The book targets instructors, instructional designers, and educational leaders who are interested in understanding and implementing either summative or formative assessment in online and blended learning environments. This book will assist the relevant audience in the theory and practice of assessment in online and blended learning environments. Providing both a research and practice perspective, this book can help instructors make the connection between pedagogy and technology tools to maximize their teaching and student learning. Among the questions addressed in this book are: • What assessment strategies can be used in online or blended learning? • How can instructors design effective assessment strategies? • What methods or technology tools can be used for assessment in online or blended learning? • How does peerassessment work in online or blended learning environments?
