Description The importance of assessment in Australian schools is now clearly recognised. Assessment and Reporting: Celebrating Student Achievement 4E examines the nature of assessment and reporting within the context of learning. It provides a timely analysis of assessment and reporting within two different contexts: increased accountability required by governments and a greater focus on authentic assessment that facilitates student learning. These two contexts are not necessarily complementary and provide unique challenges for teachers. This new edition reflects on current and enduring debates, and provides students and beginning teachers with theoretical and practical understandings of assessment and reporting. This book is suitable for primary and secondary pre-service teachers, allowing it to be integrated into any level of teacher education course. Contents 1. Contexts for Assessment and Reporting; 2.
