Assessment 5-14: What Do Pupils and Parents Think? Spotlight.
Atkinson, Patricia
Spotlight, n87 2003
A study was conducted to determine the attitudes of students and their parents about classroom assessment in one elementary school classroom in Scotland in the context of the Scottish "Assessment 5-14" document. Informal observation and student responses to mid-session and end-of-session questionnaires showed that students valued assessment. What mattered most to the students was to have assessment as part of the process of learning and the processes of thinking about learning and talking about learning. Students and those of their parents who answered a parent questionnaire particularly valued knowing in advance what would be assessed and receiving a mix of formal and informal assessment with understandable grades, and students also valued self- and peer-assessment. Parents wanted useful information about their childs progress and not just summative assessment. (SLD)
