New Educational Assessment section

Exams, tests, coursework and other forms of measuring pupil progress fall under the general rubric of Educational Assessment, a new subject section added to the Intute: Education gateway.

This Wikipedia definition approaches the topic from a psychological point of view, but provides a decent introduction to some of the issues educationalists explore when looking at the topic of assessment.

The Educational Assessment section has initially been populated with items that were already part of the Intute: Education gateway, but do new items will be added to it over time and feel free to suggest a site for inclusion.

For more on educational assessment try the DCSF website for individual documents, the Teachers TV website for instructional videos and the Teaching and Learning Research Programme for research on assessment.

Intute: Social Sciences features more resources on the topic of Educational Assessment.
