Practitioners working within the EYFS are still uncertain of exactly how to manage assessment. This book will take them through the process step by step. It explains the terminology involved, shows practitioners how to turn 'observation' into 'assessment' and in the final chapter sets out how to manage and interpret all the information they have gathered. This book is an essential part of all early years bookshelves as the government expects 80% of the judgements on progress towards the Early Learning Goals to be based on observations of children in `child-initiated' play environments.

'This book is split into ten sections which take practitioners though all aspects of assessment, explaining the methods, terminology and purposes of different types of assessment....includes important guidance on how to include children and parents in the process' * Nursery World (May 2011) *
"The author uses her experience - gained through many years of working within the early years sector - to articulate the history and context of the development of observational assessment and assessment for learning, largely in England." * Early Years Update Magazine (June 2011) *
"It is a book that makes assessment enjoyable, manageable and useful, with its tried and tested practical examples, checklists, ideas and research-based advice. It is without doubt, the best book I have read about assessment this year." * Early Years Educator *
