Roberts-Holmes, Guy
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v59 n2 p159-168 2017
This article responds to the dangers arising from baseline assessment in reception classes. It contrasts predictive testing which claims to ascertain each child's ability and potential with the processes of observation, documentation and discussion developed in Reggio Emilia. It explores the two very different understandings of children which they reflect.
