Authentic Assessment in Action: Studies of Schools and Students at Work examines, through case studies of elementary and secondary schools, how five schools have developed "authentic," performance-based assessments of students' learning, and how this work has interacted with and influenced the teaching and learning experiences students encounter in school. This important and timely book reveals the changing dynamics of classroom life as it moves from more traditional pedagogy to one that asks students to master intellectual and practical skills that are eminently transferable to "real-life" social settings and workplaces. This book will be important reading for practitioners, professors, and researchers of curriculum and instruction and educational policy and will serve as a supplementary text in pre- and in-service courses in elementary and secondary curriculum development, curriculum and teaching, school organizations, educational leadership, educational policy and implementation.
