If you ever have students who are reluctant to tell you when they don’t understand something—or worse, tell you they understand when they really don't—then here's a book that gives you lots of ways to check for understanding. Learn why typical methods to check for understanding are usually ineffective. And explore formative assessment techniques that work in any subject area and grade level. Extensive classroom examples show you how to use these formative assessments to correct misconceptions, improve learning, and model good study skills for individual students or across multiple classrooms.About the Author:
