New release on the significance of assessment in a student-centred learning culture.
Flipped Assessment presents formative assessment as the most important factor in a student-centred learning culture. The book is built on practical experience and strong theoretical foundations. The author’s account of how she developed her own assessment practices offers guidance for readers.
For individuals and the learning community as a whole, it is important that assessment does not support any particular view of inherent superiority. We should forget the prevailing opinion that assessment must be fair and objective. Instead, teachers should strive for ethical assessment that helps the students believe in their own ability to learn. The book also describes how assessment is used to support students to reach their own individual goals. Optimal assessment supports the learning of the whole community.
