Description

With the increasing emphasis on assessment being used for high-stakes testing of pupils, school evaluation, and teacher efficacy measures, there is a lot at stake for teachers. This straightforward and easy to access book demystifies the processes of assessment, provides practical strategies around assessment and emphasises that it is your assessments as a teacher that are most likely to achieve learning gains for your pupils. Designed to be read over a week, the book is divided into seven chapters, each detailing clear strategies, examining the strategy in action and summarising the relevant underpinning theory.
