"This book is written by one of the leading experts on assessment. It contains the deep knowledge and understanding that comes with knowing a subject inside out; but Jan Dubiel’s approach is very practical."
-Professor Tina Bruce CBE, University of Roehampton
How we assess our youngest children is a vital part of early years practice.
The new edition of Jan Dubiel’s bestselling book offers a clear explanation of the role of assessment in the revised Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), and step-by-step guidance for those working with children from birth to five on making and recording observations in practice. Updated throughout the second edition now features:
- A brand new chapter on the History of the Baseline Assessment Policy
- A companion website including access to SAGE journal articles, child observation videos and examples of completed assessments
- Detailed guidance on the new Integrated Health and Education check at age two
This book continues to help students and practitioners develop an evidence-based understanding of assessment and an appreciation of what constitutes effective assessment in early years settings.
