From The Art & Science of Teaching to High Reliability
Schools, proficiency scales are a core feature of Dr Robert Marzano’s
internationally acclaimed school improvement frameworks. Because the generic
form of a proficiency scale is comparable across teachers, across topics,
across subject areas and across year levels, it allows teachers to compile
summative scores for specific topics and increases the reliability of test
design and scoring.

Whether you are actively engaged in implementing a Marzano
Institute initiative in your school or simply need guidance when it comes to
measuring student learning, Proficiency
Scales for English and Mathematics Standards
can help. Designed to
supplement your existing practice, it contains over 110 proficiency scales that
will bring new rigour and focus to your teaching and assessment practice, as
well as aid in creating unique proficiency scales for the Australian
Curriculum. Every Marzano proficiency scale is based on a four-point rating system
at each level, with 11 hierarchical stages for each measurement topic. The book
presents a comprehensive set of scales for both English and mathematics, across
a range of learning areas including:


  • Reading

  • Reading

  • Writing

  • Speaking
    and Listening

  • Language


  • Number
    and Quantity

  • Operations
    and Algebra

  • Functions

  • Geometry

  • Measurement,
    Data, Statistics and Probability

Proficiency Scales play a fundamental role in Dr Marzano's approach to educational system enhancement, and they are an essential part of practice for any teacher committed to rigorous improvement, but they can be time-consuming to devise. Luckily this indispensable resource works on your behalf, making classroom implementation of Marzano's proven strategy quicker and easier than ever before.
