Reviewed by Linda Dawson, Deputy Headteacher, The Bemrose School, Derby.
Claire's book provides us with a very thorough and clear explanation of AfL and puts it well and truly at the heart of school improvement in terms of developing outstanding teaching and learning. Perfect Assessment for Learning is full of practical, fun and imaginative ways of engaging students and teachers in the learning process. The 'top tips' sections are bursting with a wide range of strategies which are easy to implement and establish as routine practice in the classroom.
What is very striking about the book is how important the relationship between the teacher and the learner is. Knowing precisely where our strengths and weaknesses lie as teachers and learners is so important and the more we know in this respect I believe the better the learning and progress will be. I particularly liked the suggestion that effective feedback should be two- way. Asking the students to feedback more regularly on my teaching will be something that I will definitely try, I think I might call it 'knowing me, knowing you'.
I am sure that anyone who is interested in improving learning in their classrooms and schools will find this a stimulating, practical and very effective resource. Reviewed by Mo Laycock OBE, former Head Teacher (1995-2010), Firth Park Community Arts College, Sheffield.
This is an excellent and practical book which should be readily available for use by all staff in schools. In particular, senior managers and the teaching and learning coaches team. Used well Claire Gadsby's practical ideas should enhance teaching and learning.
Assessment for learning as Claire describes it should be like a 'golden thread', pulling together effective lesson planning, clear objectives, chunking up the lesson tasks, and ending with an in depth plenary. This consistency across the school is what ultimately moves a school from good to outstanding. Assessment for learning is not an add on
