    Put the powerful tools of measuring progress back in the hands of students. Leaders of Their Own Learning offers a new way of thinking about assessment. Student-engaged assessment involves students in understanding and investing in their own growth, changing the primary role of assessment from evaluating and ranking students to motivating them to learn. Student-engaged assessment ignites the capacity of students to take responsibility for their own learning, building the independence, critical thinking skills, perseverance, and self-reflective understanding they need to succeed in college, careers, and life.

    The eight key practices described in Leaders of Their Own Learning engage students in making academic progress, improve achievement, and involve families and communities in the life of the school. The book, which includes 27 videos, is full of powerful strategies to help students own their learning.
