"This book would be extremely helpful in helping my students learn to focus 1) consider and articulate the mathematics understanding, 2) shift their focus to making sense of student understanding, and 3) realize that true teaching is then acting on the gap between the understandings the student holds and the full set of understandings that you would like them to hold."
-- Grace Kelemanik, Consultant & Mathematics Content Teacher Educator
"This book was outstanding, and I would recommend it to any math educator. The depth of research integrated into practice is extensive and, as a result, is the most practical book I have seen related to either formative assessment or mathematics. The most helpful aspect of the book is the affective nature so often ignored in educational works. The self-regulation aspects, as well as the ownership and involvement emphasized in the book went beyond the traditional cognitive strategies endorsed in most books."
-- Marc Simmons, Principal
"The ideas [in this book] are brought to life with mathematics examples of teachers and students in the classroom. The teacher voices, comments, and quotes lend credibility and are a big component of the book's strengths as well as the visuals and graphics."
-- Rita Tellez, Math Coordinator
