The book contains real examples of formative and summative assessments from a variety of content areas and demonstrates how to successfully increase the level of critical thinking in every elementary classroom.
 
Dr. Stobaugh is a former middle school and high school teacher and was named Social Studies Teacher of the Year by the Kentucky Council for Social Studies in 2004. She also served as a middle school principal. At WKU, she teaches assessment and unit-planning courses in the teacher education program.
