Abstract

The authors of this paper are concerned that good assessment practice involving close observations of children and strong links between parents and practitioners, as outlined in the themes and principles of the EYFS, may be overlooked or even disregarded in the current climate of uncertainty in relation to the nature and purpose of assessment, vis-à-vis the recognition of an individual child’s learning and the school accountability agenda of the neo-liberal era.
