Are you struggling with the complexities of assessment? Demystifying the process of assessment for learning in the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), this book explains in straightforward language how to put principles into practice.

- collecting evidence as a basis for making judgements

- how to track the child's development in the six areas of learning

- using assessment to inform future planning

- summative assessment in the EYFS

- involving parents and carers in the assessment process

- moderation

Throughout the book there are plenty of practical examples from a range of early years settings, with case studies for the Birth to Five age range.

Students, teachers, teaching assistants and those working towards Early Years Professional Status (EYPS) will find this an invaluable guide.
