Lindsay Porzio, an NBCT in Virginia, finds the first three chapters of Marzano’s book most helpful. They discuss the necessity of feedback, ways students respond to it (success-driven or failure-avoidant), and how traditional standardized tests and point systems fall short. In the book’s later parts, Marzano recommends the “Item Response Theory,” which “involves teachers examining patterns of responses and inferring a student’s level of understanding based on their responses,” says Porzio.
