This book, the fifth and final volume of the National Assessments of Educational Achievement series, draws on the experiences of over forty countries that have implemented a national assessment. It considers the role of contextual factors which impinge on the use of assessment findings. The attachment of sanctions to performance on a national assessment and use of assessment results for accountability are discussed. Key components of a national assessment report are specified . Other instruments to communicate findings are described. Uses of national assessment findings for policy, management, teaching, and raising public awareness are described. A number of ways in which the use and value of national assessments could be optimized are proposed. This volume is intended primarily for teams who are responsible for conducting national assessments and policy makers responsible for the dissemination and use of national assessment results.

Effective and constructive teacher-provided feedback on formative and summative assessment tasks is central to student learning. Yet some teachers feel insufficiently motivated to provide such feedback, and teachers and students report that students are often more interested in simply discovering their grade than appreciating, or even reading, written comments on their assignments. This paper offers evidence that supports these observations and then reports the findings of a unique self-assessment activity that was designed to address these entwined problems with the feedback mechanism. The activity, based on the principles of Learning-Oriented Assessment, involved tutors providing written feedback, but withholding final grades, on assignments submitted by a cohort of 2nd and 3rd Year History students. Giving consideration to supplied assessment criteria and grade descriptors, and the feedback they received, the students were then required to award themselves a grade and write a 100-word justification, which was submitted to the tutor. Analysis of the grades awarded by the students and tutors, and an evaluation of the exercise administered by an anonymous and non-compulsory questionnaire, revealed a high degree of grade agreement, and that students became much more motivated to read and heed the feedback they received. Moreover...

Uganda's commitment to improving the quality and outcomes of its education system has translated into a parallel commitment to creating stronger, more sustainable student assessment system, one that includes: (i) examinations for selection and certification; (ii) large scale assessments for monitoring education quality at the country level; and (iii) classroom assessments for evaluating student work and informing ongoing teaching and learning. A number of lessons can be learned from Uganda's experience. First, political stability and a strong commitment to education are key drivers for building a strong assessment system. Second, charging a single institution with all assessment activities can allow for clearer institutional structures, as well as efficient coordination, development, and implementation of assessment programs. Third, competitive salaries need to be in place to attract and retain personnel, and training needs to be provided for capacity building. Finally, a strong focus on student learning and curriculum reforms can act as important catalyst for strengthening the assessment system
