  2. Inside The Black Box of Assessment

    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 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.

  5. Inside the Black Box: Science

    Science provides the means by which learners can interact with the world around them and develop ideas about the phenomena they experience. To be able to learn science in this way, students need help in developing process skills to investigate, and communication skills to question and discuss findings. The specific aim of Inside the Black Box: Science is the improvement of science education, so ideas are put in the context of the aims and expectations of science teaching. The book sets out in detail the research findings on four main ways of practising formative assessment found to be both workable and productive with teachers of science, and it shows teachers how to develop formative work within a science faculty in a school.

  7. Inside the Black Box: Foreign Languages

    Inside the Black Box: Foreign Languages offers advice to foreign languages teachers on developing assessment practices that improve learning, backed by rigorous evidence that the assessment for learning method is effective and feasible in real classrooms. Formative assessment fits naturally into the foreign languages setting since teachers can collect and sift data that arises in classroom interactions and activities, so that professional judgements can be made about the next steps in learning. Inside the Black Box presents the principles that underlie effective learning and teaching in languages before outlining practical ways of implementing formative assessment in the languages classroom, going on to demonstrate how formative assessment can be developed within a languages department.

  8. Inside the Black Box: Maths

    Inside the Black Box: Maths outlines the principles of formative assessment and how they can be applied in the maths classroom. The recommendations made in Inside the Black Box: Maths gain particular strength from the fact that they are grounded in the main findings of many decades of research into the principles that govern effective learning and the factors that help support the motivation and self-esteem of learners. This research is put into the context of the aims and expectations of mathematics teaching, and the authors outline their findings on ways of practising formative assessment that have been found to be both workable and productive with mathematics teachers, including classroom dialogue, feedback and marking, and peer- and self-assessment.

  9. Inside the Black Box: ICT

    In the ever-evolving climate of ICT education, formative assessment practices have an essential role to play, since their purpose is to enable teachers to sift the rich data that arise in class discussion and activity so that professional judgements can be made about the next steps in learning. In this book, the authors offer advice to ICT teachers on how to use formative assessment to interact more effectively with students and promote learning. They set out in detail four main ways of practising formative assessment in an ICT setting, outlining assessment techniques that encourage learners to bring their ideas to the fore. Using these methods, teachers can gauge what students already know, while assessing learners’ analytical skills and how they approach a design task.

  10. Inside the Black Box: Geography
    Geography students must develop process skills for investigation as well as communication skills to question and discuss their findings. Formative assessment fits well into this learning setting, since its purpose is for teachers to sift student responses in class discussion and activity and make professional judgements about the next steps in learning. Using this exclusive edition, revised by John Butler to align with the recently released Australian Curriculum: Geography, primary and secondary teachers throughout Australia can enrich their geography instruction with assessment for learning while fulfilling national curriculum requirements.
