Drawing together research, theory and best practice, Brown and Knight explore the key issues and highlight the central position of assessment in learning, showing how, through feedback, it enables students to develop and extend themselves. The authors describe wide variety of assessment techniques and give guidance on how to use them, while the same time preparing the reader for the potential pitfalls.
