This book is so good for those who need to know about assessment in Early Years
Excellent and again popular with Students will recommend again this year
An extremely informative book with good reflective activities. The key points make it accessible for student reference.
Adopted as essential reading on FdA Learning Support. A useful guide for those Learning Support staff who do not work in the National Curriculum, containing so much useful information about the multi-faceted nature of assessment in early childhood education and care.
A very practical helpful text, shame there isn't a text for the Foundation Phase in Wales!
A very readable book. Gives practical advice, theoretical perspectives and points for reflection. Useful for all early childhood students.
Very useful as part of the STALN module for the Foundation Degree (CYP) easy to use and reader friendly. Some good overall content to guide students through assessment in the early years
I have already shared this text with some Early Years Option trainees to support them on school experience. The book develops understanding and knowledge of the range of assessment techniques and processes.
Some really excellent chapters that fit well with the teaching on FdA Early Years and ITE courses we offer here
The book will be very useful as a guide as to how and why we use AfL in the EYFS. I particularly like the case study information and reflective activities. The key points will be valuable for these future practitioners. I have also suggested it as a core text on the BA in Early Childhood Studies Course at the univeristy.
A clear and well written book - immensely useful in learning about assessment at this often overlooked stage of schooling.
The text offers learners with extensive guidance on assessments for young children. I refered to the book in class and one of the learners borrowed it for the day. On returning it she said it was 'brilliant' and she had quoted some material in her assessed work. Assessment is key in the early years and this book supports my module perfectly!
Useful book and has a practical emphasis.
a good book for all cache diploma courses. the learnes all found this book useful
This text is recommended for the following programmes I teach on;
EYPS, EYFS level 3 inset training and the Diploma two year course in child care and FdA HE year one students.
Practical guidance on how and why to assess whilst adhering to EYFS principles and commitments and linking clearly to four main themes. Simplistic style enables new practitioners to become familiar whilst challenging more experienced professional to reflect upon current assessment styles.
Excellent text with key relevance to current contemporary issues, research and policy
Assessment for learning is clearly explained for Foundation Degree students
Excellent book for all courses
This is a very good addition to Child Development module and to Early Years professionals to help them assess a child's learning as per the EYFS
