Following on the success of 2008’s Major Work, Student Assessment and Testing (ed. Harlen), this new four-volume Major Work revisits the topic of assessment in education but shifts the focus to take a more detailed look at important aspects of the subject previously only touched upon, such as:
- Assessment carried out by teachers
- Advances in technological approaches to assessment, most notably in computerized adaptive testing
- Our understanding of assessment for learning (including peer and self-assessment, formative assessment and feedback)
- Ethical dimensions such as students’ rights and entitlements
This new collection brings together the best existing work in these areas, and is introduced by a newly-written contextualising chapter by the major work’s esteemed editor, John Gardner.

'Assessment continues to be one of the most powerful influences - for good or ill - on students' educational experience. Efforts to improve assessment practice are therefore urgent. Much is known about what is needed but knowing how this might be achieved often remains elusive. This Major Work provides some answers by bringing together important innovations in assessment technology and practice.'
