About the Author:

Kim Bailey is former director of professional development and instructional support for the Capistrano Unified School District in California. Her leadership was instrumental in uniting and guiding educators throughout the district's 58 schools on their journey to becoming professional learning communities. She also taught courses in educational leadership as an adjunct faculty member at Chapman University in California. Prior to her work in professional development, Kim served as an administrator of special education programs and a teacher of students with disabilities.

Kim's education background spans 38 years, and her work at Capistrano has won national praise. The National School Boards Association (NSBA) recognized Kim's leadership in coordinating and implementing the district's Professional Development Academies. The academies received the distinguished NSBA Magna Award and the California School Boards Association Golden Bell Award. Kim has served on the Committee on Accreditation for the California Commission on Teaching Credentialing.

As a writer and consultant, Kim works with educators nationwide to build effective leadership of PLCs. She is passionate about empowering teams with practical, collaborative strategies for aligning instruction, assessment, and interventions with the standards so that all students receive high-quality instruction.

Kim earned a bachelor of science and a master of science in education and special education from Northern Illinois University.

Chris Jakicic, EdD, served as principal of Woodlawn Middle School in Illinois from its opening day in 1999 through the spring of 2007. Under her leadership, the staff shifted toward a collaborative culture focused on learning and implemented formative assessment practices to shape their instructional strategies. Student motivation and performance increased. Dr. Jakicic began her career teaching middle school science before serving as principal of Willow Grove Elementary School in Illinois for nine years. At Willow Grove, she helped teachers develop high-performing collaborative teams to increase student learning.

Through her work with teachers and administrators across the country, Dr. Jakicic emphasizes that effective teaming is the heart of PLCs. She also shares practical knowledge about how to use data conversations to interpret classroom information for effective instruction. Woodlawn is one of the schools featured on allthingsplc.info.

Dr. Jakicic has worked closely with schools and districts that want to use the power of common formative assessments to increase learning for all students. She provides specific, practical strategies for teams who want to make the best use of their limited common planning time to write effective assessments at the rigor of the Common Core State Standards. Teams can use the data from these assessments to effectively provide students with exactly what they need next.

Dr. Jakicic has written articles for the Journal of Staff Development and Illinois School Research and Development Journal detailing her experiences with common assessments and PLCs. She has worked as an adjunct instructor at National-Louis University as well as Loyola University Chicago, where she earned a doctor of education.

Review:

Simplifying Common Assessment is the book that we have been waiting for an articulate and clear resource that demystifies the common assessment process. Kim Bailey and Chris Jakicic provide teachers and collaborative teams with a user-friendly road map to carefully plan for, design, implement, analyze, and grade common assessments the linchpin in the PLC at Work process. Simplifying Common Assessment is the essential resource for teachers and teams looking to enhance their collaborative efforts and use common assessments to improve student learning and achievement. --Eric Twadell, Superintendent, Adlai E. Stevenson High School District 125, Lincolnshire, Illinois

By providing easy-to-follow templates, tools, and protocols for identifying essential outcomes, unpacking complex standards, and writing rigorous questions that reflect the higher level of thinking required by modern curricula, Simplifying Common Assessment has made it possible for my PLT to better study the impact that our instructional choices have on student learning. If clarity precedes competence in any core behavior an argument often made by PLC expert Becky DuFour then this text is a must-read for every team interested in relentlessly questioning their practice in service of student learning. --William M. Ferriter, Educational Consultant; Sixth-Grade Teacher, Salem Middle School, Apex, North Carolina

This book brings simplicity to what is often viewed as a complex process! Excellent support for collaborative teams in a cycle of continuous improvement. Excellent support for starting with the end in mind! Simple, practical, and easy applications for designing quality common assessments that allow collaborative teams to determine whether students acquire essential knowledge and skills. Brimming with practical applications for designing quality assessment measures of student learning! Well written for easy application as a collaborative team or as a singleton teacher. Simplifies what is often a daunting topic from the design process of a common assessment to utilizing data to support student learning. Addresses what is often a top concern for educators designing quality common assessments of student learning. Simple and practical application no matter the grade level or content area you teach! --Andrew DuRoss, Superintendent, Schaumburg School District 54, Illinois
