About

Educators know it's important to get students to engage in "higher-order thinking." But what does higher-order thinking actually look like? And how can K–12 classroom teachers assess it across the disciplines? Author, consultant, and former classroom teacher Susan M. Brookhart answers these questions and more in this straightforward, practical guide to assessment that can help teachers determine if students are actually displaying the kind of complex thinking that current content standards emphasize.
