In this practical guide for school leaders, authors Connie M. Moss and Susan M. Brookhart define formative assessment as an active, continual process in which teachers and students work together--every day, every minute--to gather evidence of learning, always keeping in mind three guiding questions: Where am I going? Where am I now? What strategy or strategies can help me get to where I need to go? Chapters focus on the six elements of formative assessment: (1) sharing learning targets and criteria for success, (2) feedback that feeds forward, (3) student goal setting, (4) student self-assessment, (5) strategic teacher questioning, and (6) engaging students in asking effective questions.

Using specific examples based on their extensive work with teachers, the authors provide

* 'Strategic talking points'; and 'conversation starters'; to address common misconceptions about formative assessment;
* Practical classroom strategies to share with teachers;
* Ways to model the elements of formative assessment in conversations with teachers about their professional learning;
* 'What if'; scenarios and advice for how to deal with them; and
* Questions for reflection to gauge understanding and progress.

As Moss and Brookhart emphasize, the goal is not to 'do'; formative assessment, but to embrace a major cultural change that moves away from teacher-led instruction to a 'partnership of intentional inquiry'; between student and teacher, with better teaching and learning as the outcome.
