Learning Autonomy in Post-16 Education by Kathryn Ecclestone

Book Description

This book makes an important contribution to understanding the political, social and educational impact of assessment. Using a multi-layered approach, it offers a fascinating case study of how post-16 assessment systems are designed and debated inside policy making processes. This case study highlights the broader tensions at the heart of assessment policy. The book also explores the complex factors that affect how teachers and students use formative assessment to achieve higher standards of educational attainment and more autonomous learning. Learning Autonomy in Post-16 Education is a comprehensive and authoritative account of policy and practice in post-16 assessment. The book weaves together new theoretical frameworks with evidence from empirical research to offer a detailed picture of the diverse factors affecting the quality of formative assessment in further education. The book will be of particular interest to teachers and practitioners across the post-16 sector on postgraduate and in-service professional development courses. It will also be of interest to researchers, inspectors and qualification designers.

Books By Author Kathryn Ecclestone

Transforming Formative Assessment in Lifelong Learning by Kathryn Ecclestone Transforming Formative Assessment in Lifelong Learning, Paperback (October 2010)

Through a series of case studies, the book highlights how factors in one learning context can conspire to make feedback and other forms of formative assessment highly instrumental, whilst in others this can be a springboard to deep and meaningful learning.

Transitions and Learning Through the Lifecourse by Kathryn Ecclestone Transitions and Learning Through the Lifecourse, Paperback (October 2009)

'Transition' has numerous everyday and conceptual meanings yet, while certain transitions are unsettling and difficult for some people, risk, challenge and even difficulty might also be important factors in successful transitions for others. This title evaluates insights about educational, life and work transitions from various fields of research.

Dangerous Rise of Therapeutic Education by Kathryn Ecclestone Dangerous Rise of Therapeutic Education, Hardback (June 2008)

Uses a wealth of examples across the education system, from primary schools to university, and the workplace to show how therapeutic education is turning children, young people and adults into anxious and self-preoccupied individuals rather than aspiring, optimistic and resilient learners who want to know everything about the world.
