Role of Classroom Assessment in Teaching and Learning

Lorrie A. Shepard

This report develops a framework for understanding a reformed view of assessment, where assessment plays an integral role in teaching and learning. The author explains how classroom assessment practices must be transformed in two ways in order to help students learn. First, the content and character of assessments must be improved so that they represent important thinking and problem-solving skills in each of the disciplines. Second, the use of information from assessments by teachers and students must become a part of the ongoing learning process. 2000.
