Assessment in the Multi-Ethnic Primary Classroom.
Keel, Pat, Ed.
As the assessments mandated by the British National Curriculum have come into use, teachers have found the core concern to be how to manage the assessment of each student's progress within the framework of the statutory requirements. This book focuses on the assessment of students of ethnic minority backgrounds and presents a collection of contributions by people involved in the day-to-day delivery of education. They include: (1) "Beginnings of the Multi-Ethnic Classroom" (Pat Keel); (2) "An Inexact Science--Issues of Assessment" (Pauline Lyseight-jones); (3) "Educational Responses to Linguistic Diversity" (Updesh Porter and Pat Keel); (4) "Assessing Young Children's Learning" (Celia Burgess-Macey); (5) "Assessment of Bilingual Pupils: Issues of Fluency" (Maggie Gravelle and Elaine Sturman); (6) "Assessing Primary Progress" (Elaine Sturman and Martin Francis); (7) "The Role of Black Parents in Schools" (Patsy Daniels); (8) "OFSTED (Office for Standards in Education) Inspections and the Centrality of Equality of Opportunity in Raising Standards" (Rehana Minhas); (9) "Resources for Raising Achievement" (Pat Keel); and (10) "Where To Next?" (Pat Keel). (Contains 128 references.) (SLD)
