This is especially true of literacy learning. Yet many teachers have a developing sense of unease with the traditional methods of evaluation they are expected to use. Responsive Evaluation describes the journey of a group of classroom teachers, administrators and researchers as they addressed the issues of evaluation and assessment. They wanted to find a model that was congruent with the way literacy is taught and which would convince parents and the general public that there were credible alternatives to traditional methods of evaluating learning. They found their answers in 'responsive evaluation' and share them in this book."@en ;
