About a year ago—shortly after I wandered into Twitter and blogging—I had a series of really enjoyable conversations about assessment with a handful of teachers. Daniel Schneider featured prominently in many of those conversations, either because he joined them directly or simply because he influenced them heavily by writing a string of fantastic posts over on his blog.
I occasionally find myself wanting to read through one or more of those posts again. And sometimes I want to share them with a colleague or a student. Since I fully expect my future self will be even more lazy than my current self, I’ll drop some links to a few of my favorites below.
- A Question: Why Don’t We Brag About Assessments? (March 11, 2013)
- Another Question Regarding Assessments (March 16, 2013)
- Some Reflections: How Assessment Impacts Curriculum (March 17, 2013)

P.S. If you’re just going to read three of them, make it #1, #4, and #5. Though by that point you’ll probably be hungry for more and you’ll wisely dive into #6.
