While this blog post might seem purely promotional, it’s a cry for help. It’s about constructing a grassroots movement of education game changers–people who can shape the direction of teaching and learning.
Some of education’s brightest minds are calling Assessment 3.0 bold, revolutionary, insightful, persuasive and important.
Why take their word for it, when you can win a chance to read it first, decide for yourself, and share your thoughts with the world before the book becomes available in February.
Corwin Press is giving 25 people pre-publication copies of Assessment 3.0: Throw Out Your Grade Book and Inspire Learning.
While selling books is important to sustain authors and publishers, the goal here is to create a buzz–to spark conversation about a powerful education movement.
Assessment 3.0 is a movement against traditional grades, featuring a radical change of assessment that focuses on building an ongoing conversation about learning. We believe that a small group of education stakeholders, who read this book before it’s published can create a conversation about a real reform that will help change the game forever.

What thought leaders say
Mark Barnes is a leader and revolutionary voice in the movement to rid our educational system of an outdated assessment model. In Assessment 3.0, he delivers a persuasive pitch that current grading practices are both poor reflections of learning and damaging to students. Not only does he clearly define the problem, he offers a powerful solution with his SE2R model and delivers a blueprint for implementation that can transform classrooms and schools.

This book will convince any reluctant educator to rethink the traditional grading system. If Mark’s vision can become a reality, students will be prepared for a world that doesn’t reward A’s and condemn F’s.
Angela Maiers, Educator, Author, Speaker and Founder of Choose2Matter
Current achievement-driven, testing and grading-focused school cultures offer little insight into teaching and learning—often fostering negative self-esteem and pressure on students. Through logical argument, practical instructional moves, and a clear passion for children and their learning needs, Mark Barnes pushes our thinking and invites us to imagine a different path for education. I look forward to sharing Assessment 3.0 with colleagues. It promises to be a game-changer for schools.

A special group of education shareholders will drive the conversation about Assessment 3.0. Don’t miss your chance to reshape education.
