Review quote

"This is an engaging and informative book that deftly guides the reader through some complex practical and ethical issues with intelligent use of examples." * Anthony Green, ELT * "Although the book is aimed at language teachers at primary and secondary level, I would recommend it to anyone seeking to deepen their knowledge and understanding of the purpose, use and methods of assessment, which in turn will allow them to provide their learners with more meaningful assessment and a better overall learning experience." * English Teaching Professional * "With this timely volume, Eunice Jang, an accomplished researcher in this field, offers to help teachers to understand the emerging evidence on classroom assessment and to use it as an incentive to think critically about their own practices... an engaging and informative book that deftly guides the reader through some complex practical and ethical issues... even experienced teachers will be challenged to think about assessment in new ways." * Anthony Green, ELT Journal * "Although it is based on the most up-to-date empirical insights in the field, it is written in an engaging and readable style. What makes it unique is its use-focused approach, i.e. how teachers use language assessment to inform their pedagogy. Focus on Assessment brings us new perspectives. It is highly recommended for pre- and in-service teachers and graduate students in TESOL" * Modern English Teacher * "...part of the innovative Oxford Key Concepts series which helps teachers to understand research... I like the interactive approach... Insightful." * EL Gazette * "I'm delighted to find a book designed to help school teachers understand the complexities of language assessment. It discusses important principles and issues for assessing young and adolescent language learners. The book is well-researched and succeeds in making relevant research findings accessible to teachers." * Antony John Kunnan, Professor of English, University of Macau *show more
