Summary "Translating mandated standards into concrete objectives and then creating appropriate tasks to assess student learning of those objectives can be a challenge for educators. This practical resource provides a step-by-step process that shows readers how to make designing educational objectives and creating appropriate assessment tasks a part of their day-to-day practice. Written as a stand-alone volume, Designing and Assessing Educational Objectives reviews the framework and basic principles of Marzano's New Taxonomy and illustrates how educators can utilize Marzano's model to assess student performance on a broad scale or for a specific unit of instruction or grading period. The book explores objectives and tasks for each of the six levels of mental processingاretrieval, comprehension, analysis, knowledge utilization, metacognition, and self-system thinkingاand features: Benchmark statements that provide a starting point for the process - Step-by-step models, helpful diagrams, and useful charts - Numerous detailed examples from multiple subject areas and grade levels - Application of the taxonomy's three domains of knowledge: information, mental procedures, and psychomotor procedures - Comprehensive and profound, this resource is essential for teachers, school and district administrators, curriculum directors, and assessment specialists seeking to apply standards to curriculum and instruction for measurable results."--Publisher's website.
