Condition: Very Good.
Reprint with amendments. [First: 1993] From the cover: “This book examines some of the important questions that teachers and other educators ask themselves as they assess children’s learning across the curriculum. It offers an alternative to the objective, mechanical approaches to assessment that have proliferated since the implementation of the 1988 Education Reform Act. In this book, assessment is seen as the process in which teachers look at children’s learning, strive to understand it, and then put their understanding to good use. It invites teachers to consider the choices they make in the process of assessment, and to acknowledge their right, their responsibility and their power to act in the interests of children.”
