Aimed at students who are preparing to teach in secondary schools, and newly qualified teachers in their induction year, this title provides an in-depth consideration of aspects of assessment which exercise teachers at the beginning of their career. For example, the relationship between assessment and learning, how assessment contributes to planning, ways of marking pupils' work, writing reports for parents and meetings with parents. Although it is informed by theory and research, the text has a practical orientation. It provides practical examples for readers to consider in developing their own practices and makes suggestions for activities intended to help beginning teachers to develop their own ideas and insights into assessments. The text is written for a graduate and undergraduate audience and aims to promote a thoughtful, well-informed approach to assessment and critical awareness of issues which arise out of practice.

"...illustrates examples of good practice and suggests following-up activities." - TES
