Since writing Common Formative Assessment: A Toolkit for PLCs at Work, authors Kim Bailey and Chris Jakicic have collaborated with schools and districts across the United States to implement PLCs that shift their focus from teaching to learning. Through these collaborations, the authors have found that a key aspect of expanding students' learning is teachers' ability to create and hone their own common formative assessments. In Simplifying Common Assessment: A Guide for Professional Learning Communities at Work(tm), Bailey and Jakicic build on the process featured in Common Formative Assessment and demonstrate how teachers can develop effective and efficient assessments. They simplify assessment development to give teacher teams the confidence to write and use team-designed common formative assessments. This way, educators can monitor students' learning and ensure that all students master essential skills and concepts.
