Rethinking Assessment: Managing Behaviour and Reducing Disaffection
Didaskalou, Eleni; Millward, Alan
Emotional & Behavioural Difficulties, v12 n3 p191-203 Sep 2007
Disaffection and behaviour problems continue to be a cause of concern in many schools. Although many schemes and initiatives have attempted to address these issues, few have proved completely successful. It is suggested that in the light of the current phase of educational reforms, with its emphasis on raising standards and target setting, the role of increased assessment in the generation of these problems may have been overlooked. The experiences of a number of schools in exploring a different approach to pupil assessment emphasising the development of a number of generic "life skills" are explored and the effects on these two issues discussed.
