Assessing the Humanities in the Primary School Using a Portfolio-Based Approach
Eaude, Tony
FORUM: for promoting 3-19 comprehensive education, v59 n2 p217-222 2017
This article suggests that a portfolio-based approach to assessing the humanities in the primary school is appropriate and outlines what this might involve. It argues for a broad interpretation of "the humanities" and for adopting principles associated with formative assessment, where assessment is not equated with testing and a wide range of children's achievements are celebrated.
