    This book by Moss and Brookhart is an overview of the different methodology behind formative assessment, how it works with the classroom community to bridge learning with proper quality questioning, and methods to measure your own success in the implementation of a variety of formative assessment models to make sure that your students are finding a variety of opportunities to prove their knowledge throughout the process of instruction I enjoyed this book, and the resources they provide throughout the text are helpful and immediately implementable in the classroom I have found that using formative assessment in a variety of ways is extremely helpful in keeping students engaged, and allowing them to understand the level of discourse that is required in the classroom and required of the texts we are reading or the pieces we are writing While I have used formative assessment for a long time, the methods that are presented and ways of measuring the implementation are useful and easy to roll out in planning lessons, discussions, and checking student growth.That said, there are a lot of things that this book is wholly bizarre for instance, the insistence and reiteration by the authors that if it were only for correct quality questioning, an instructor could find that students have a great deal motivation, buy in, and engagement with their education overall I thought that this was ridiculous especially in classrooms...
