School-Wide Assessment: The Big Picture.
Irving, James
This publication focuses on the major issues and requirements that schools need to consider in developing an effective schoolwide assessment program. It is the first in a series on assessment by the New Zealand Council for Educational Research. The primary purpose in developing an effective schoolwide assessment program must be to improve students' learning. A secondary purpose is to help monitor the school's effectiveness. To achieve these purposes, it is necessary to have the valid and reliable information about the ongoing performance of students that a good schoolwide assessment program provides. The following chapters are included: (1) "The Basic Questions"; (2) "Why a School-Wide Assessment Programme?"; (3) "Understanding the Big Picture"; (4) "National Monitoring and Assessment"; (5) "Meeting National Assessment Requirements"; (6) "Planning for School-Wide Assessment"; (7) "The Place of Professional Judgment"; (8) "Achievement Objectives and Assessment"; (9) "Recording and Reporting on Achievement"; (10) "Managing Change in the School"; and (11) "Conclusion."
