    Review ------ "Common Formative Assessment is one of the best toolkits for collaborative teams of educators committed to the PLC process that we have encountered. It provides the specificity and insights that can only come from authors who have not only led the PLC at Work process in their own school districts, but have also helped schools at all levels, in a variety of different settings, overcome the challenges inherent in deep implementation. Common Formative Assessment presents a compelling case for engaging educators in the kind of work that actually leads to improved student achievement. " --From the foreword by Richard DuFour and Rebecca DuFour "A terrific resource for teachers at every level. The authors unwrap and unravel every aspect of using common formative assessments in the classroom. In a very practical, accessible, and easy-to-understand manner, this book unlocks one of the most effective strategies we know of for helping all kids learn." --Thomas W. Many, Author and Consultant "Bailey and Jakicic have skillfully addressed the challenge of creating quality common formative assessments. This practical toolkit filled with examples and clear explanations is what every team needs to improve student learning." --Kay Burke, Author and Consultant Read more ( javascript:void(0) ) About the Author ---------------- Kim Bailey is director of staff development and instructional support for the Capistrano Unified School District in southern California. Her leadership has been instrumental in uniting and guiding educators throughout the district s fifty-six schools in their journey to becoming professional learning communities (PLCs). In addition to her role at Capistrano, Kim works with schools and districts across the nation, providing guidance and support to move forward with their own development as PLCs. Kim is passionate about empowering teams to do the important work inherent in effective learning communities, including the development of common formative assessments, and the alignment of standards, assessment, interventions, and instruction. Kim s education background spans over thirty 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 American School Board Journal Magna Award and the California School Boards Association Golden Bell Award. She has also taught courses in educational leadership as an adjunct faculty member at Chapman University in Orange, California, and is coauthor of Starting Strong: Surviving and Thriving as a New Teacher. Chris Jakicic, EdD, served as principal of Woodlawn Middle School in Long Grove, 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 assessment for learning practices to shape their instructional strategies. Student motivation and performance also increased. Chris began her career teaching middle school science before serving as principal of Willow Grove Elementary in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, for nine years. Her experience as a practitioner guides her work with schools; she wants teachers to feel confident that they have the skills and the ability to make a difference for their students. Through her work with teachers and administrators across the country, Chris 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. Chris 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. Read more ( javascript:void(0) )
