Abstract

This chapter critically reviews the role and use of assessment in the learning and teaching process. Assessment is pivotal in learning, and the use of assessment in early childhood and school education is considered. It is argued that striking a balance between the assessment of, and for, learning is crucial for the effective education of all learners, particularly the most marginalized and disadvantaged. We also advance the view that well-designed assessment systems are important for accountability and for ensuring the success of educational reform efforts.
