Observing And Assessing For The FSP


Recommended Posts

This book examines the role of assessment in learning and teaching and explains how to set up a manageable, effective assessment system across the whole of the Foundation Stage. Hutchin gives clear instructions on how to carry out observations and collect ongoing evidence of learning, and considers how to involve parents and the children themselves in the process. As is usual in Hutchin’s books, there are numerous case studies and practical examples from FS practitioners who work in a variety of early years settings.

The book later examines the critical process of using assessment to inform planning, and discusses the implications in implementing an observation-based formative assessment system.

This book comes highly recommended and is essential reading for all Foundation Stage practitioners, not just reception teachers who are responsible for completing the profile. All advice within the book is of practical use to practitioners working in the full range of early years settings.
