Editorial Reviews

'The authors are experienced teacher trainers with a particular interest in assessment. Their fascinating book is research-based with a sharp focus on teaching, assessment and feedback practices. The examples give invaluable and detailed insights of skilful teachers moving learning forward, particularly in the core subjects. Students and teachers who are looking for ways to extend their skills will find plenty to think about. Teacher trainers should find the book helpful in focusing their work with students. Heads will find it useful for school-based in-service training and as a source of classroom observation benchmarks for performance management,' - Mike Sullivan, Times Educational Supplement
