Assessment and Learning: Primary and Secondary
The assessment of what children have learned has become an important issue in education in the last few years, and this book examines ways of assessing children's work and progress. Topics addressed include the principles and purposes of assesment; written, oral and practical evaluation; self-assessment; the "whole school" approach; and staff development and appraisal. The inclusion of practical activities, discussion topics, as well as photographs, cartoons and case examples, makes this a very accessible book both for trainees and experienced teachers in primary and secondary schools.
