This comprehensive, practical second edition has been updated in line with the new standards for qualified teacher status, in particular the competence in monitoring and assessment. Writing primarily for student and newly qualified teachers, whose classroom experience is necessarily limited, the author takes pains to elucidate why to assess, what to assess and how to assess. Theory and practice are linked throughout by way of case studies, activities and discussion points. Question and answer format, children's work and authentic written records are used to exemplify monitoring and assessment in action as part of the planning cycle. Photocopiable examples of recording sheets and a glossary of terms provide readers with valuable starting points for their own practice.

Internationally there is an increasing trend to publish and feed back information to schools and teachers on their functioning. School improvement is often the central goal, though accountability and the promotion of parental/student school choice also play an important role.Practical initiatives and research in this field have often failed to recognize the full complexity of improving schools through school performance feedback. Relevant questions are, for example, to what extent: the information fed back to schools is valued and understood by them; the school performance feedback enables appropriate diagnosis and remediation to take place in schools; the use of the feedback generates conflicts and tensions for teachers and administrators; the features of the implementation process and school organization influence the utilization of school performance feedback systems; schools do actually improve as a result of performance feedback; and the feedback systems have unintended effects. This book fills the gap by including: a thorough conceptualization of school feedback as a performance enhancing mechanism, and the prerequisites for utilizing this information in schools; a typology of school performance indicators; a review of the research on the impact of feeding back performance information to individuals and to organizations; evidence on the process, problems and impact of school performance feedback from an international variety of contexts (Australia, the Netherlands, United Kingdom, USA); and reflections on these experiences within the theoretical framework, leading to recommended strategies for school improvement through performance feedback.

Written by an experienced practitioner who has a very current understanding of the school context, this book gives a fantastically clear, detailed and realistic strategy for primary schools with regards to raising attainment and inclusive practice. Anne Massey has provided a cogent and manageable system of provision mapping for whole-school improvement. – Pippa Whittaker, SENCO, Hans Price Academy, UK. 'This very detailed book will enable schools to develop whole school approaches which improve outcomes and ensure that they are removing barriers to participation and achievement for all children.' – Dr Peter Grimes, Principal Lecturer in Inclusive School Development, Canterbury Christ Church University, UK. This highly practical book contains all the guidance and resources a school will need in order to implement an efficient and effective system of pupil progress tracking and evaluative Provision Mapping. It is a tried and tested system that has been shown to improve outcomes for all pupils, including those with SEN, and sits at the very heart of school self-evaluation. Throughout this book, teachers will find achievable solutions to the problems schools face in trying to ensure that their practice results in all pupils making good progress. Anne Massey has adapted the original version of Provision Mapping and developed it into a more evaluative framework that links a number of school improvement actions together. All the recommendations in this book have been tried and tested in Primary schools, and have been proven to: bring about better progress and engagement for all pupils; provide an enhanced understanding of inclusion by teachers; improve communication between the school, parents and the Local Authority; reduce bureaucracy and paperwork for SENCOs; foster an improved understanding of 'value for money'. Headteachers, senior managers, leadership teams, SENCOs and other educational professionals will find the guidance and support provided by this toolkit invaluable. Provision Mapping will also be of value to those studying the more SEN-specific postgraduate diplomas or Masters level qualifications.
