Encourage achievement with assessments that promote growth—for every student!
Imagine a classroom where students can’t wait to take tests. A dream? Maybe. But when you make restorative assessment part of your classroom culture, your students are more likely to feel safe, ready for challenges, and eager to showcase their knowledge whenever they have the chance.
Unlike ordinary testing, restorative assessments offer students multiple ways to demonstrate their learning—promoting equity and reducing conflict in the classroom. Since assessments happen regularly, you have more opportunities to check student progress and tailor your teaching accordingly. In this guide, you’ll find:
- Real-world examples of restorative assessment in practice
- Cutting-edge research on personalized learning and assessment
- Practical strategies for implementation
- Action points and reflection questions
In today’s diverse classrooms, one-size-fits-all learning is a thing of the past. Empower your teaching—and your students—by mastering restorative assessment and helping every student grow.

"Why waste time on assessment for just more data when you can have assessment that is restorative and intentionally creates more learning opportunities for all students? This book offers the structure for a purpose-driven assessment system that uses student-centered formative assessments as a means to respond to learning, re-engage students and immediately deliver specific, appropriate instruction to allow all students to succeed."

Worksheets and on-line tutorials may keep learners occupied, but not necessarily engaged. Read this blog from Laura Greenstein, author of Restorative Assessment, for a better understanding of what engagement truly is and how you can boost engagement in your classroom.
