RESTORATIVE ASSESSMENT
Chapter 1: Reverting to Purpose

Assessment and testing have different meanings. A test is a tool for measuring. Number 1 could mean your golf handicap or your score out of a possible 10. Assessment extends beyond simply pointing out right and wrong answers. It is intended to illuminate learning, engage students, and guide improvement. Assessment is at its best when it:

  1. Synchronizes and sustains intentional and purposeful learning outcomes.
  2. Monitors progress throughout teaching and learning.
  3. Provides multiple pathways for students to demonstrate competency.
  4. Informs teachers and students of next steps towards closing gaps and improving understanding.
