This video is a teacher's interpretation of a song relating to assessment. I thoroughly enjoyed it as it raises points that we, as teachers, need to think about. While this has always been relevant it is particularly interesting at the moment as we are introducting National Standards in our primary schools here in New Zealand and this video has a NZ flavour to it - however all the concepts are relevant to all teachers.

When assessing we need to be aware that all children have different strengths and abilities - we don't children thinking that they can't do something and just give up which is exactly what can happen if we are not careful.
