Assessment for Learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage by Jonathan Glazzard, Denise Chadwick, Anne Webster, Julie Percival

Are you struggling with the complexities of assessment? Demystifying the process of assessment for learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), this book explains in straightforward language how to put principles into practice. Looking at models of assessment, the book draws heavily on examples of real assessments from practice, and the relevant theory is explained in context. Lessons from research are applied to best practice, and issues covered include: - self-assessment and peer assessment - collecting evidence as a basis for making judgements - how to track the child's development in the six areas of learning - using assessment to inform future planning - summative assessment in the EYFS - involving parents and carers in the assessment process - using assessment to support children with additional needs - moderation Throughout the book there are plenty of practical examples from a range of early years settings, with case studies for the Birth to Five age range. Students, teachers, teaching assistants and those working towards Early Years Professional Status (EYPS) will find this an invaluable guide.


'This book provides an excellent overview of how to make assessment for learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage meaningful. It is accessible and helpfully structured...[and] its strong pricncipled approach is full of practical, innovative ideas...Overall, this book certainly helps us find the process of assessment in the early years less daunting and complex' -

Nursery World

'This is a refreshing text because it argues that assessment should be a celebration of what children can do, while being informal, regular and able to inform future planning' -

Early Years Educator

'This book is a good practice and idea guide to assessment for learning and would be particularly useful to students, teachers, teaching assistants and other Early Years Practitioners' -

Early Years Online

'As a current student I found it particularly difficult to access the key points in academic literature but this book gives an excellent explanation of the important aspects of the different theories and assessment for learning. I would thoroughly recommend it to all students no matter what stage of their course they are at. It isn't like many of the academic books I have tried to read which are filled with technical jargon, it is precise and concise and very enjoyable' - Kaye Meakin BA (Hons) Early Primary Education year 3'
