The authors present an accessible model for developing unit and daily lesson plan objectives based on state and national content standards. Providing detailed examples for each level of Bloom's Taxonomy, including synthesis and evaluation, the book covers the major forms of assessment that allow teachers to measure students' understanding and mastery of the objectives. Teachers will learn how to:
Unwrap state and national standards
Understand how objectives and test items provide evidence of a particular level of knowledge
Write measurable objectives for unit and daily lesson plans
Develop appropriate assessments in the content areas
This easy-to-follow resource gives teachers the tools to write specific, standards-based objectives and find the perfect assessments to measure their students' progress!
“This is the only book that takes a step-by-step approach to student assessment at the middle and secondary school levels. This book is a unique contribution to the field of evaluation and assessment.”
Loved it and feel that it will be very practical for our teachers.
