Assessment is how we attempt to make learning visible; it includes any procedure or strategy used to collect information that will help us make inferences about our pupils’ learning (The American Educational Research Association, 1999).  To gain confidence in how, why and when we use assessment in the classroom, we need to understand four key principles (Evidence Based Education 2017): In this video, we hear from Daisy Christodoulou, Director of Education at No More Marking about the key principles of effective assessment.
