Assessment for Learning


I was replying to an email from a colleague about some ideas for formative assessment and I was surprised¬† that I hadn’t ever mentioned that here, or a great resource we’ve been using.

This year a big focus for our teacher learning has been around formative assessment or assessment for learning and a key resource we’ve used has been Toni Glasson’s excellent book, Improving Student Achievement. Published by the Curriculum Corporation it’s a very practical and user-friendly way into some of these ideas.¬† I’m sorry I haven’t mentioned it earlier!
