Damian Cooper - Talk About Assessment Effective assessment is the key to student learning. This concept is at the centre of Talk About Assesment, a comprehensive resource that speaks directly to the classroom teacher. The text resource is divided into two sections.

An accompanying DVD brings these best practices to life in a series of 10 powerful video clips that feature teachers and their students in real situations.

It is the teacher's role to make sure this happens. Do You Check for Understanding Often Enough with Students?

Second, to wrestle with some of the issues that come along with them.
