Understanding assessment and being able to use it effectively is at the heart of successful primary teaching. Aware of current policy and research, this book looks at the role and purpose of assessment within education, as well as providing detailed practical guidance on the main types of classroom assessment, including formative, summative, formal and informal methods.

Real classroom examples and activities illustrate the practical uses, benefits, and limitations of each form of assessment, enabling you to feel confident about implementing these strategies in your own teaching.

Coverage includes:

The assessment planning cycle
Innovative forms of assessment, including portfolios, debates, role play and mind mapping
Assessment of learners with diverse needs, including SEN and EAL
The use of technology in assessment
Engaging children through self-assessment and peer-assessment
This is essential reading for all primary initial teacher education courses, including university-based (PGCE, PGDE, BA QTS, BEd), school-based (SCITT, School Direct, Teach First) and employment-based routes into teaching, and beginning teachers.

Sue Faragher is Head of Al Basma British School, a large private school in Abu Dhabi.
