I liked that this flip chart includes almost anything you could think of that you might need regarding assessments. Not only does it include information on testing strategies, but also ideas on how to analyze results and implement re-teaching or helping to further understanding and learning of a concept.
Much of the contents of this flip chart are topics in which I have been exposed to during professional development. It is a valuable resource to have when planning lessons and assessments. In addition, the Matrices at the end of the chart allow teachers with various backgrounds to apply Bloom's Taxonomy to other cognitive rigor models.
The Cognitive Rigor Models were great and used vocabulary from Blooms and helped push me as I made lesson plans, too, and in return push my kids. I also like that it provides several different suggestions to fit the teacher and or student style.
