Recent government circulars have detailed the standards to be attained by those seeking qualified teacher status. These include competence in monitoring, assessment, recording, reporting and accountability (MARRA), the subject of this comprehensive, practical book. Writing primarily for student and newly-qualified teachers whose classroom experience is necessarily limited, the authors elucidates why to assess, what to assess amd how to access. 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 MARRA in action as an essential part of the plannig cycle. Photocopiable examples of recording sheets and a glossary of terms provide readers with valuable starting points for their own practice.
