Assessment strategies

5th March 2004 at 00:00
I was a teacher who was fortunate enough to participate in the project on assessment featured on your front page on January 30, and it changed many of my approaches to teaching.

I would definitely agree with the statement about the effectiveness of the project as it has made my job easier and has improved my children's learning.

However, your article only briefly mentions many of the strategies involved and I think you missed a golden opportunity to highlight for teachers the many ideas on how to make teaching more interactive and easier. Hopefully the brief mention you did give them will be enough to get some people interested.
