This reader is suitable for all primary and secondary school teachers.
In a sense, the other booklets in the series help to build a platform from which you can implement the ideas in this booklet. Sharing learning outcomes helps pupils to know what they are learning and whether they have been successful. Asking better questions helps teachers to model discussion and dialogue, and to create a climate where peer- and self-assessment are taken seriously. Making feedback count gives teachers a model of how to give feedback.
Like the others in the series, this booklet is a tribute to the inventiveness and ingenuity of hundreds of teachers who have used the ideas behind assessment for learning to help young people learn more effectively. And these teachers have done this despite the fact that some of these ideas are challenging both for them and for the young people they are teaching.
The ideas and case studies in this booklet show how teachers have not only taken the philosophy that underpins assessment for learning to heart but have picked up a wealth of practical classroom ideas and adapted them to suit different age groups and subject areas.
This booklet is in three sections:
How to build a climate that supports self and peer assessment
How to use assessment to help pupils recognize quality learning
How to use assessment to help pupils become better learners.
