What Teachers Need to Know About Assessment and Reporting is a response to the pressures on teachers and schools to not only improve the quality of teaching, but to demonstrate improved outcomes. Many teachers apply assessment approaches which are familiar from their own education or that are learnt from peers. This book seeks to fill the gap in teacher knowledge about assessment and reporting and to provide practical support in this area for teachers and school leaders. It explores the various purposes of assessment along with practical guidance on creating and scoring assessments, interpreting and using data, and reporting the results to various audiences for various purposes.
