"In this series, the authors offer a sharply focused description of performance assessments for teaching and learning mathematics. The structure and content of the books is very strong, centering on the specifics of task development, rubric refinement and integration of the methodology into instruction. Our challenge is to help teachers develop the assessment literacy needed to manage assessment effectively day to day in the classroom. This series helps us meet that challenge." --Rick Stiggins, Assessment Consultant, Portland, Oregon
"This book challenges everyone to analyze classroom assessment strategies and adapt their performance tasks to make them more current. The content is practical and includes an explanation of why performance assessments provide valuable data for educators to take learning to a deeper level." --Kara M. Chism, Ed.D, Assistant Principal, Rocky Ridge Elementary, Hoover, Alabama
"The second edition of the Danielson series on performance tasks and rubrics brings clarity to the complex but important responsibility of creating and using authentic assessments in the classroom. Advocating the complementary roles both of traditional tests and performance tasks in a balanced assessment system, Danielson and her colleagues provide practical guidelines for and useful examples of performance tasks in K-12 mathematics. Their focus on the rigorous yet fair and engaging assessment of authentic performance tasks is as timely as it is timeless to teaching." --Chris Gareis and Leslie Grant, authors of Teacher-Made Assessments: How to Connect Curriculum, Instruction, and Student Learning (2nd ed.)
