This book could be used to express the importance of correct and appropriate assessment in ITT and LLS. The book is easy to follow and gives several points of reference to allow the reader to follow and link to practice effectively.
This is recommended for students on the Certificate in Assessing Vocational Achievement course. It is a clear and accessible book with useful references for further study. The book covers all the main concepts and issues that assessors need to understand and it also contains illustrative extracts from student learning journals that help to maintain reader interest. It would also be useful for a CTLLS or DTLLS qualification.
This updated version is as helpful as the original in enabling learners to gain a comprehensive understanding of issues around assessment in Lifelong Learning.
A concise and well-laid out book. Although aimed at teachers wanting to achieve QTLS it would be useful for those on teacher training and TAQA courses as well. For TAQA it provides a different approach to the standard texts giving additional information for learners.
A good text book that helps trainees develop a deeper understanding of assessment in the LLS
