Innovative Assessment Practice is a research-based scholarly book written for higher education researchers and lecturers. It is also a useful resource for all those interested in the diverse nature of assessment. Through the scholarship of teaching and learning, assessment researchers from South Africa and across the globe investigate their own assessment practice with student teachers learning about how to teach in the early years of formal schooling (Foundation Phase). The way in which student teachers experience being assessed influences their own assessment practice with learners. By challenging the traditional approaches to assessment, the authors of this book argue it is important for student teachers to experience innovative assessment practices to develop the skills and attitudes needed to become responsible assessors. The editor of the book is Professor Ina Joubert. She is based in the Department of Early Childhood Education in the Faculty of Education, University of Pretoria, South Africa.
