Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: A teacher presents a lesson, and at the end asks students if they understand the material. The students nod and say they get it. Later, the teacher is dismayed when many of the students fail a test on the material. Why aren t students getting it? And, just as important, why didn t the teacher recognize the problem?

In Checking for Understanding, Douglas Fisher and Nancy Frey show how to increase students understanding with the help of creative formative assessments. When used regularly, formative assessments enable every teacher to determine what students know and what they still need to learn. Fisher and Frey explore a variety of engaging activities that check for and increase understanding, including interactive writing, portfolios, multimedia presentations, audience response systems, and much more.

This new 2nd edition of Checking for Understanding has been updated to reflect the latest thinking in formative assessment and to show how the concepts apply in the context of Fisher and Frey s work on gradual release of responsibility, guided instruction, formative assessment systems, data analysis, and quality instruction.
