Assessment for Learning

The research indicates that improving learning through assessment depends on five, deceptively simple, key factors:

·     the provision of effective feedback to pupils;

·     the active involvement of pupils in their own learning;

·     adjusting teaching to take account of the results of assessment;

·     a recognition of the profound influence assessment has on the motivation and  self-esteem of pupils,

·        the need for pupils to be able to assess themselves and understand how to improve.

This section of the NCETM website explores forms of assessment which are most supportive of learning mathematics and how can they be effectively and efficiently integrated into classroom teaching
