Welcome back to my series on the book Seven Strategies of Assessment for Learning by Jan Chappuis. Last week we looked at Chapter 1, which makes a strong argument for the case that formative assessment is directly tied to student learning. This week, we’ll delve into Chapter 2, which focuses on practical implementation of the first two of the seven strategies of assessment:

  1. Provide a clear and understandable vision of the learning target.
  2. Use examples and models of strong and weak work.

Collectively, these two strategies help students first answer the question “Where am I going?” so that they are prepared to find a way to get there.
