Book Description

1 Jan 2007 1903776759 978-1903776759
Good assessment focuses mainly on improvement and is used to support progress. It helps learners to know how well they have learned and provides feedback on how they can do better; it encourages learners to support and help each other; it builds self-motivation, self-confidence and self-reliance. Sound familiar? These are the principles of formative assessment. They're at the heart of the national Assessment for Learning initiative and they form the core of the "Assessment & Learning Pocketbook". You know the theory but how do you turn it into practice? That's where Ian Smith comes in. Let Ian explain the difference between formative and summative assessment. Let him walk you through writing and sharing learning intentions and success criteria; promoting high quality interaction in lessons, verbal and written feedback, self- and peer- assessment. You'll find classroom strategies and inspiring ideas galore.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent advice! 11 Feb 2014
By Eilidh
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book which breaks down assessment and learning into manageable chunks. I found the chapter on learning intentions and success criteria most useful and know I'll be referring back to this book for guidance for years to come. I'm an NQT, but this could be useful for any teacher looking for some help in this area.
