 Description:


This book gives you the practical strategies you need to plan effectively and to implement assessment processes that will advance children’s learning and improve your teaching. 

This highly practical guide places the different styles and purposes of assessment in the wider context of school-based curriculum planning, teaching and target setting, and puts the child at the heart of assessment processes. 

The book first gives an overview of the various types and stages of assessment, showing how each feeds into the next.  It then looks in turn at: 

            Planning

            Sharing learning intentions

            Pupils’ self-evaluation

            Marking and feedback

            Target setting

            Tracking progress 

Each chapter outlines purposes, principles and practice, taking account of current initiatives and recent research and discussing strengths, weaknesses, manageability and impact on teaching and learning.  The book also looks at baseline testing, benchmarking, value-added and summative assessment.  Highly accessible and down to earth, it contains useful summary sections, excerpts from vital documents and examples of alternative formats and good classroom practice
