For middle and high school teachers of mathematics and science, this book is filled with examples of instructional strategies that address students’ readiness levels, interests, and learning preferences. It shows teachers how to formatively assess their students by addressing differentiated learning targets.

Included are detailed examples of differentiated formative assessment schedules, plus tips on how to collaborate with others to improve assessment processes.
