Using Assessment Information to Inform Teaching and Learning
Kirkup, Catherine
Education 3-13, v34 n2 p153-162 Jun 2006
The ways in which teachers and head teachers integrate external summative testing and formative assessment practices were explored by means of a questionnaire survey and a small number of case studies. A clear distinction was found between end of key stage tests and optional tests in the extent to which they could be used directly to support teaching and learning. Within the current context of high-stakes external testing, it was found that, although qualitative information from formal tests was proving useful at school and class level, potential benefits for individual pupils were not being fully realised.
