Expectation assessment and target setting

The research indicates that improving learning through assessment depends on five, deceptively simple, key factors:

  • the provision of effective feedback to pupils;

  • the active involvement of pupils in their own learning;

  • adjusting teaching to take account of the results of assessment;

  • a recognition of the profound influence assessment has on the motivation and self-esteem of pupils, both of which are crucial influences on learning;

  • the need for pupils to be able to assess themselves and understand how to improve.

Expectation assessment and target setting

The characteristics of assessment that promote learning are that:

  • it is embedded in a view of teaching and learning of which it is an essential part;

  • it involves sharing learning goals with pupils;

  • it aims to help pupils to know and to recognise the standards they are aiming for;

  • it involves pupils in self-assessment;

  • it provides feedback which leads to pupils recognising their next steps and how to take them;

  • it is underpinned by confidence that every student can improve;

  • it involves both teacher and pupils reviewing and reflecting on assessment data.
