The Importance of formative assessment
"Embedded Formative Assessment" - Dylan Wiliam (2011)
(Book on order for DRC.)

"Formative assessment plays an important role in increasing teacher quality and student learning when it's viewed as a process rather than a tool. Emphasizing the instructional side of formative assessment, this book explores in-depth the use of classroom questioning, learning intentions and success criteria, feedback, collaborative and cooperative learning, and self-regulated learning to engineer effective learning environments for students."
