Assessment for Learning in Waldorf Classrooms
Enter this important book: Assessment for Learning in Waldorf Classrooms by Sara Ciborski and Helen-Ann Ireland. Here two scholars provide a detailed and alternative view to the “measure and punish” scenario in a research project that focuses on the assessment practices of teachers in independent American Waldorf schools. This in-depth qualitative research describes how nine Waldorf teachers implement learner-centered assessment and how their schools support such practices. Detailed vignettes are included that show how academic, social, motivational and arts-integrated curricula can be assessed authentically.
