The book examines the nature of assessment and reporting and the relationship to learning; it defines key terms, enunciates principles, and describes a range of strategies that respond to the more formal approaches to testing as well as recent approaches to authentic assessment, including peer and self-assessment. It also examines the Australian government's external testing program, and the assessment and reporting implications of the national curriculum. Assessment and reporting practice is analysed within the context of eight cases that have the benefit of presenting practice as problematic and situated.
Assessment and Reporting: Celebrating Student Achievement captures with fidelity the reality of assessment and reporting policy as well as practice in Australian schools, reflects the concerns of the contemporary assessment literature and articulates the complex issues relating to assessment and reporting.
