Link to a good read

I've just finished reading Lorna M. Earl's text 'Assessment as Learning: Using Classroom Assessment to Maximise Student Learning (2013), which I will discuss in my next post. Immediately after finishing, I started to look up some of the references (for use in my Thesis literature review) and stumbled upon the following link, which anyone should be able to access. It's an article by W. James Popham about formative assessment; I think it would make good reading for anyone who is seeking some clarification on what formative assessment is. It's quite accessible and interesting, so give it a read!
