"Performance Assessment confirms many of my practices and challenges my thinking! I teach various assessment-related courses at the university level, and I cannot wait to use this as a supplement to our textbook." -- Amy L. Weems "2013 Louisiana Teacher of the Year"
"In a time where application of knowledge is a vital student learning outcome, Performance Assessment is absolutely relevant. The alignment to current expectations and practices (common core, standards, curricular goals, instructional objectives, and learning targets) only heightens its appeal to the practicing teacher." -- Kristen C. Merrell "2012 Missouri Teacher of the Year"
"I found myself reading through this and immediately thinking of how I could incorporate more performance assessments in my class." -- Todd E. Chappa "2014 Michigan Teacher of the Year finalist"
"Our nation needs to break away from the fixation on multiple-choice testing. This book promotes the need for performance assessments as part of a comprehensive approach to assessment and illustrates how to effectively and responsibly do this." -- Jay McTighe "education author and consultant"
