Principles and Indicators for Student Assessment Systems

author: National Forum on Assessment
description: This summary report from Fair Test and the National Forum on Assessment outlines seven principles the authors believe must be met in an "ideal" assessment system. The principles are intended to "provide a vision of how to transform assessment systems and practices as part of wider school reform, with a particular focus on improving classroom assessment while ensuring large-scale assessment also supports learning." Included in this online paper is information on how to order a full copy of "Principles and Indicators for Student Assessment Systems."
