Assessment for learning is at the heart of effective learning and teaching and has been recognised as a key factor in raising students’ standards of achievement.
Inside the Black Box of Assessment helps you to develop the quality of your summative assessments, offering easy-to-read advice for teachers on how to implement the key techniques within formative assessment – questioning, feedback, and peer/self assessment.
Previous booklets in the Black Box series have targeted teachers of particular curriculum subjects. However, Inside the Black Box of Assessment is different in that its aim is to help all teachers and schools develop the quality of their own summative assessments. The philosophy of the Black Box booklets is that formative assessment is considerably more than the sum of a series of handy tips and techniques; rather, it is about creating a learning culture within the classroom that enables the student to become an independent and effective learner.
