Assessment of Gifted and High-Ability Learners equips readers with the knowledge and skills to evaluate and document student progress using a cyclical systematic process. The book includes sample curriculum-based assessments for use with gifted and high-ability students. Based on standards in each content area, these sample assessments illustrate the best methods for evaluating this group of students. Beyond providing examples and resources, the authors highlight and explain the importance of curriculum-based assessments and their significance in connecting classroom content with the assessment process. They also describe how, through the use of formative and pre-and postassessments, students' progress on specific goals can be tracked and improved. Learning how to effectively assess students will assist teachers in appropriately differentiating instruction based on student performance and allow each student to progress through content at his or her own pace.
