Assessment for learning

This text is very easy reading and clearly set out, so information is easy to access, The figures make the content easy to access for learners with SpLDs such as dyslexia and the Take 5 section is another opportunity for readers to consolidate the key messages within each chapter. The classroom exemplars are also a way of enabling trainee teachers to link theory to practice as well as practice to theory as they illustrate key concepts in action
