"Ipsative Assessment provides an insightful look into the philosophies, principles, processes, and realities of assessment in education and beyond. Hughes's argument in favour of empowering learners and teachers provides a thought-provoking take on the potential and the limitations of assessment that is certain to make this book a favourite with teachers, learners, and educational assessment stakeholders alike." (Paraskevi Mylona, London Review of Education, Vol. 13 (3), December, 2015)

"The take-home message from Ipsative Assessment: Motivation through Marking Progress is that ipsative assessment is not new, but formal institutional systems adopting this perspective are scarce. Therefore, in order to successfully support students' learning, institutions need to adopt a dual system approach that combines traditional purposes of assessments (e.g., competition) with processes that support scaffolded learning (i.e., ipsative assessment)." - British Journal of Educational Studies
