Assessment of what children have learned has become an ever more important matter and this book addresses both formal and informal ways of assessing children’s work and progress. Assessment is now regarded as a high stakes issue: schools, teachers, individual pupils are often judged by the results of national tests and public examinations. Pupils’ learning is frequently neglected in the debate so this book puts what children actually learn right at its centre.
