use formative assessment to promote learning. Themes addressed include feedback;

power and roles of learners and teachers; self-assessment and peer assessment; and

sharing success criteria with learners. The book equips teachers, student teachers,

educators, and researchers with a sophisticated grasp of issues in formative assessment

and how they relate to the promotion of pupil learning.
