Carol Ann Tomlinson and Tonya R. Moon take an in-depth look at assessment and show how differentiation can improve the process in all grade levels and subject areas. After discussing differentiation in general, the authors focus on how differentiation applies to various forms of assessment--pre-assessment, formative assessment, and summative assessment--and to grading and report cards. Readers learn how differentiation can--Capture student interest and increase motivation --Clarify teachers' understanding about what is most important to teach--Enhance students' and teachers' belief in student learning capacity; and--Help teachers understand their students' individual similarities and differences so they can reach more students, more effectively Throughout, Tomlinson and Moon emphasize the importance of maintaining a consistent focus on the essential knowledge, understandings, and skills that all students must acquire, no matter what their starting point. Detailed scenarios illustrate how assessment differentiation can occur in three realms (student readiness, interest, and learning style or preference) and how it can improve assessment validity and reliability and decrease errors and teacher bias.Grounded in research and the authors' teaching experience, Assessment and Student Success in a Differentiated Classroom outlines a common-sense approach that is both thoughtful and practical, and that empowers teachers and students to discover, strive for, and achieve their true potential.… (more)

Differentiation relates more to addressing students' different phases of learning from novice to capable to proficient rather than merely providing different activities to different groups
  Katyabel | Jul 16, 2015 |
When reading this book from a teacher librarian perspective, there comes an overwhelming urge to sit down with a group of major educational consultants like Carol and Jay McTighe and a number of others to work through a different scenario than helping the isolated teacher in the isolated classroom “covering” prescribed content. Dr. Tomlinson addresses content understanding and “process” by which she means a teaching strategy. We would like these major thinkers to turn their attention to the real world of rich information environments, rich technology environments, and teaming the classroom teacher with a teacher librarian to assess how both working together can produce not just an expected result but challenge kids to exceed expectations. This volume concentrates on what teachers assess, when, and how they assess. But. what about the students themselves? What about what other specialists in the school can contribute to assessment? There are solid ideas here for just one piece of the total picture of assessment and teacher librarians are likely to participate in a professional development discussion of these strategies, but we urge that you be prepared with other perspectives that demonstrate your contribution to teaching and learning, and urge other types of measures. So, if this book is being discussed in your faculty, you must read it; otherwise, we are still looking for a broader perspective some time this century…

Book description
This book takes an in-depth look at assessment and shows how differentiation can improve the process in all levels and subject areas. The authors emphasize the interconnectedness of the five elements of teaching and learning (curriculum, instruction, assessment, learning environment, and classroom leadership/management) and the importance of maintaining a consistent focus on the essential knowledge, understandings, and skills that all students must acquire-no matter what their starting points in learning. Detailed scenarios illustrate how assessment differentiation can occur in three realms (student readiness, interest, and learning style or preference) and how assessment validity and reliability can be improved.
