'An absolute must for all of us endeavouring to cope with and combat the current climate' - Early Years
This book has three objectives; to identify the essential features of forms of assessment which will be genuinely supportive of education in the early years; to help teachers in their search for such forms; and to evaluate the likely impact of the systems of external assessment currently being imposed.
