'I congratulate the authors in recognising the need for such a publication and for producing such an accessible and useful glossary'Gordon Stobard, Emeritus Professor of Education, Instittue of Education, University of London
Brilliant book for Teachers Trainers! One of the best I have seen for assessment - well, this and Tummons's book. It goes into sufficient depth but not too much detail on a range of different types of assessment from APL to Work-based Assessment (WBA). This book is accessible to everyone and should be in every college's LRC. Great for AET and DET trainees alike!
The content of this book defines terms related to assessment clearly making it simpler for those who do not understand the terms. The book covers several concepts related to assessment and theory, useful book for referencing.
Good book for reference. Explains terms well and gives references to explore each one further.
I have now completed the reading of this text and I have found it to be very accessible and it covers a number of the main principles that learners on our courses need to grasp, the glossary is also very useful. As a direct consequence we have made it an essential reader.
An excellent resource for clarification of key terms.
Very good book to be suplementary to discussions and reflexion about educational assessment. This book Covers several concepts/terms related to assessment in education.
This book is very useful for those studying at the higher levels in that it presents many differeing perspectives on assesment.The reading lists for the book enable the reader to follow up any areas of interest.This is a very though provoking book that promotes debate on many issues surrounding the nature of asessment
A useful resource for initial Teacher Training students
Unfortunately books already confirmed for course but will be looking out for next review
Good reference book for learners to use to research a term with which they are unfamiliar. The 'Further Reading' recommendations are useful differentiation for more able learners.
This publication has arrived just at the right time for our new Foundation Degree in Teaching and Learning Support! The content encourages theory to practice by defining terms relating to assessment in such clear and effective ways which will definitely help less experienced practitioners to demystifying educational assessment by answering those questions they may not like to ask.
This has useful sections on assessment for and of learning . It also gives clear accounts of criterion and diagnostic assessment .
This textbook is very detailed but I felt that the level is not quitue right, it is detailed and interesting and shows the key themes covering the assessment process. I think that as additional reading this would be useful but not as a core reader.
This is a very useful text which provides clear and succinct guidance on the whole range of assessment and tracking.
This is a valuable resource which providesdefinitions and explanations of significant assessment terms. I have recommended it to my DTLLS students as useful for their module on assessment.
A basic text but a handy summary of key issues.
