Reflection on Assessment in Schools

There is a call to examine how students are being assessed in schools. The current education model is based on an outdated industrial model that meets the needs of a few students. Lorrie Shephard, author of The Role of Assessment in a Learning Culture, examines how the culture of learning in schools needs to change and argues it needs to be done through assessment. Paul Black and Dylan Wiliam, authors of Inside the Black Box: Raising Standards through Classroom Assessments, look at Formative Assessments and raising the standards for students in the classroom. Each author look at how the assessing of students has an impact on the student and the classroom.
