Assessment can be the hardest part of any teacher's job. It is easy to fall into the trap of seeing it all as unnecessary paperwork and feeling guilty about not having done it properly. This book takes the practical ideas laid out in Marking and Assessment and develops them to show teachers how to get the most out of assessment for their students.
