The What's in it for Schools? series aims to make educational policy issues relevant to practitioners. Each book in the series focuses on a major educational issue. The authors set the issue in context, look at how it impacts on the daily lives of schools and teachers, and raise key questions. The books are grounded in sound theory, recent research evidence and best practice, and will make an excellent addition to any staffroom bookshelf.

Assessment is a prominent and sometimes controversial issue in education. This book looks at how and why assessment matters in the classroom, discussing key issues such as:

• Can assessment raise standards?

• Can current practice be improved?

• How does self-assessment help pupils learn?

Each chapter includes practical advice for teachers on how to move from assessment that merely measures and certifies to that which is an integral and planned element of the learning process. This book is for all those who want to develop their understanding and use of assessment, to improve teaching and learning in their schools.
