Summary

Why is assessment so important in the teaching-learning process?

How should we assess pupils in the primary classroom?

Assessing Learning in the Primary Classroom is an accessible introduction to the concepts critical to a professional understanding of this vital aspect of a teacher’s role. It comprehensively considers the principles underpinning effective assessment, the different forms it can take and the different purposes it serves, both within and beyond the classroom.

Linking the latest research and theory with examples of assessment in the classroom, it considers key issues such as:

  • Why we assess
  • How we assess
  • How we ensure quality in assessment: validity and reliability
  • Assessment internal and external to the school
  • Statutory assessment throughout the primary school
  • Local, national and international assessment
  • Using assessment results in pupil, teacher, school and system evaluation

Assessing Learning in the Primary Classroom is for all students undertaking their PGCE, those working at masters level, and experienced teachers who wish to broaden their understanding of both the value and pitfalls of educational assessment.
