This book is a the most timely contribution to address our current educational impasse. It
- Offers a compelling alternative to the measurement-assessment orientation to evaluation that undermines learning and well-being in schools today
- Improves on the patchy critiques of testing and grading by offering a coherent account of the historical and cultural assumptions on which the measurement-testing tradition is based
- Richly illustrated with school-based examples that inspire the possibility of a relational approach to evaluation of students, teachers, and whole schools
- Provides concrete, classroom-rooted practices that can stimulate discussions among school leaders and policy makers
The book leads the dialogue and imagination about a post-Covid world where systemic transformation in education is possible, and where education can nurture the holistic well-being of our students in an inclusive and engaged way.
