#100wordbookreview Embedded Formative Assessment by Dylan Wiliam

There’s a lot of information out there on assessment for learning; like so many jigsaw pieces. What this book gives you is the box with the picture on, all the pieces and a selection of ways to build it.

Not only clearly explaining why effective formative feedback is an essential part of a teachers armoury it offers a huge variety of techniques to be used for different purposes throughout the learning cycle.

This book significantly enhanced both my understanding and practice in terms of assessment for learning techniques and I recommend it enthusiastically for anyone wishing to develop this area.
