‘In assessment for learning, the learner’s task is to close the gap between the present state of understanding and learning goal. Self-assessment is essential if the learner is to do this. The teachers role is to communicate appropriate goals and promote self-assessment as pupils work towards the goals. Feedback in the classroom should operate from teacher to pupils and from pupils to teacher (Sadler, 1989)’.
