This book covers the definitions, history and purposes of formative assessment, the process by which teachers monitor pupil learning and provide on going feedback that can be used by teachers to improve their teaching and by pupils to improve their learning.
Clarke clearly explains how to use formative assessment to promote active learning in primary and secondary classrooms, providing practical examples across the full age and subject range exemplifying effective learning objectives, clear success criteria, talk partner techniques, effective questioning, quality discussion with pupils, and self- and peer evaluation of work.
She demonstrates how to best support teachers in implementing effective formative assessment across a whole school or a cluster of schools, and how school leaders can best support teachers in their journey through the culture and practice of formative assessment.
In listing research, EdCentral makes no judgment or recommendation as to its quality, validity or methodology and none should be inferred. Through peer ratings left by education practitioners, EdCentral’s aim is to support the development of a repository of shared knowledge and experience.
